Should you endure yet another co-worker baby shower, offer an apology electronically, step boldly into geezerhood?
The answers are found in three 50-page e-books: “Miss Manners: On Endless Texting,” “Miss Manners: On Unabashed Aging” and “Miss Manners: On Placid Pregnancy,” published by Andrews McMeel Publishing/Universal Uclick.
Hailed by George Will as “the National Bureau of Standards,” Judith Martin has been setting etiquette in her newspaper columns since 1978. The column runs three times a week in The Star. Now assisted by Nicholas and Jacobina, her two grown and, one assumes, flawlessly behaved children, the manners diva’s e-books are available for $2.99 wherever e-books are sold.
“As for anyone who is not currently busy texting, giving birth (or being born), or growing older — we’ll get to you,” the Manners family promised.
