C：Hi, Amy. How are you?
A：I'm fine, thank you, and you?
A：Did everything go all right?
A：What did he do?
A：That's a good thing because unless your host, in this case, Mr. Brown, removes his jacket, you should not remove yours.
A：Yes, I did. That's all part of good manners. Why do you ask?
A：I agree with you. Sometimes you need to do things that you wouldn't ordinarily do to put other people at ease.
C：如果我是Mr. Brown, 看到客户脱西装，我肯定会说，“是挺热的，我也穿不住了”。
A：Absolutely. That would have made your client feel comfortable and given everyone permission to do the same.
A：Tell me what else happened at dinner. It sounds like a quite interesting night.
A：That is definitely not acceptable under any circumstances. Most men have forgotten that ties were originally created to protect the shirt. Not only is it out of place to toss your tie over your shoulder at the table, it runs counter to its purpose.
A：Good heavens, no. Your napkin should be laid in your lap - never tucked in anywhere.
A：Thank goodness you did not.
A：If you are wearing a coat or jacket to dinner, you don't remove it, no matter how uncomfortable you are, unless your host takes his off first and asks if you'd like to do the same. And your tie stays in place throughout the meal and your napkin rests in your lap.
