Talking Guide Trini
Give the person you are talking to his space. Don't come up too close because this may create discomfort for the other person.
Don't point at the person you are talking to even if you are illustrating a point. Be polite.
While talking to someone, don't answer your cell phone because the person you are speaking with will feel as if the person on the cell phone is more important to you. If you must answer, politely inform the person that it is an important call you must take and excuse yourself.
If you are smoking, don't blow smoke in the person's face while speaking to him. Turn your head away while exhaling or extinguish the cigarette.
If you must cough or sneeze, be polite and use a handkerchief or your hand to cover your mouth or nose.
If you are with your girlfriend or spouse, introduce your significant other to your friend and don't just ignore him/her while talking.
