Sometimes you just can’t remember exactly what that protocol rule book would have instructed for the situation you’re in…
Not sure what to do? Just remember the very reason that protocol exists:
Always put others’ needs, wants, and comfort before your own: ask yourself how your actions and words will affect those around you.
Love and serve your fellow man.
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
