Please don’t talk loudly on the phone, wait that you will arrive.

Umbert loves to shop around and discover new things and trends.
When he goes to a shop, if there is a push door to open, he always holds it if someone wants to enter after him or exit.
When it is a pull door, don’t forget to hold the door first, to let the other enter or exit.
When the elevator arrives, let the people exit first, then enter and make some space for others. This is the best way not to waste your and others time.
In the escalator stay on the right side so the people in a hurry can walk fast on the left side. People, especially in the cities are working, so if you respect them, they will also appreciate the tourists.
3) Rainy days
They are part of the charm of Paris and North Europe in general.
These days are often synonymous with congested sidewalks because many streets in old cities are narrow. Do not forget that this is what makes them historical and charming.

He always lowers his umbrella to let a woman pass.
A woman, meanwhile, will lower her umbrella to let an older woman pass.
Don’t forget that many works and are often in a hurry. They should, therefore, be given priority.
On the opposite, if you are in a hurry, do not “stick” the person in front.
When Umbert inadvertently hustles someone, even if he tries never to do, he immediately apologizes.

Umbert is a gallant man when he sees a woman walking on the same sidewalk; he leaves her the side along the wall, proof that he takes care of her safety.
He always leaves room for a woman on public transportation.

If he meets a married person with another man, he pretends not to have seen them. He lets the woman come to him if she wishes.
If a person arrives with a stroller, he moves to let her pass.
If he meets a senior, he takes a step aside to let her pass.
5) With your group of friends
Umbert knows many people in Paris, and he often meets friends in his favorite neighborhoods.
When discussing, they let the passage free, they don’t want to plug the sidewalk, even if the conversation is very lively.
