About This Quiz

Have you ever heard the phrase "mind your manners"? Well, many people have, but how closely do you pay attention to what it means? Every country in the world has their own rule book on etiquette and manners, and it is essential that one becomes familiar with these practices as to not offend anyone. 

While saying thank you after someone does something for you is a given, it turns out that manners vary across different countries and what side of the world you are on.  In much of the western world, belching is considered rude, while in many eastern cultures, it is considered to be a compliment as it is a sign that you have just enjoyed a great meal. Also, tipping your wait staff in many parts of the world is quite a common practice, but in places like Japan, it is considered an insult as it signifies that the person should take the money to get some training.
