It is insufficient to wear stylish garments, know the coolest joints and have everything cash can purchase. How would you hold yourself? Below are some habits that you carry out in public that may rub you of your ‘ladyhood’
1. NOSE PICKING
Ouch! This is terrible, especially when your crush or secret admirer is watching you, and in that moment where you think no one is watching, you slip a well trimmed and polished fingernail into your nostril and you begin to pick your nose. Sometimes you draw out the mucus and rub it under the table, that is very scary, unhygienic and unladylike.
Learn to clean your nostrils while bathing, and learn to go around with tissue papers or handkerchiefs so that when your nose begins to itch, you could excuse yourself and go to the ‘ladies’ and do your thing neatly. Even if you can’t go to the bathroom, make sure you always use a hanky or tissue when picking your nose!
2. ASKING RANDOM PEOPLE FOR MONEY
It’s very important for a lady to be hardworking and independent, asking your man for money is okay but you shouldn’t overdo it, make good use of your hands. But asking strangers, people you just met or online friends for money isn’t cool. Why would you even do that? It paints a bad picture of you. ‘Can you send me airtime’?, ‘Can you do this or that’? it changes the way men see you, they would begin to ask for ‘other’ things too and you get insulted at the end.
3. FARTING WITHOUT TAKING PERMISSION
LOL, when you have the urge to fart, take permission and walk away from that gathering, or if you are with your man, you can say ‘excuse me am about to fart’(lol) and you do your thing. Don’t act like a troll or a savage wild woman, whatever you do, be it sneezing, yawning(cover your hands over your mouth) or belching, learn to say ‘excuse me’.
4. NOT MAKING GOOD USE OF THE DUST BIN
Must you go with the crowd? When you are done taking your snacks or whatever you were eating, toss the cans or bags into the trash can, don’t litter, women stand for hygiene!
Stop placing your ‘over chewed’ gum underneath the table or wall, cover it with a piece of paper and throw it into the bin.
5. HOW DO YOU CHEW?
How do you chew your gum? How do you chew anything crunchy?, close your mouth while chewing gum or hard snacks to avoid distracting others with that sound. Be classy!
