How to behave in the street, according to the etiquette

Umbert loves to wander around Paris during his monthly weekends.

He knows that the etiquette demands to be always discreet and not to disturb, even in the street and in all circumstances.

If someone asks him his way, he always responds kindly, or apologizes if he doesn’t know the answer.

When a car driver gives him the passage, he thankfully nodded politely.

  • Rainy days

They are part of the charm of Paris.

These days are often synonymous with congested sidewalks, because many streets in

Paris are narrow. Do not forget that this is what makes it historic and charming.

Umbert pays attention not to jostle someone by walking too fast, and not to disturb everyone with his umbrella.

He always lowers his umbrella to let a woman pass.

A woman, meanwhile, will lower his umbrella to let an older woman pass.

Don’t forget that many Parisians work 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.

If he inadvertently hustles someone, he immediately apologizes.

  • The groups

Umbert knows everybody 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.

The group also pay attention not to talk or laugh too loud, they don’t want to disturb people who live next door, especially at night.

  • The priorities

Umbert is a gallant man, when he sees a woman walking on the same sidewalk, he leaves her side along the wall, proof that he takes care of her safety.

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 an elderly person, he takes a step aside to let her pass.

  • The cleanliness

An effort must be made by everyone to respect the environment.

Parisians who love their city try to keep it clean, but it’s not always easy.

Umbert, in an ecological approach, recalls that we should not throw anything randomly and on the sidewalks, there is always a trash nearby.

Living in society is sometimes difficult ! It is necessary to know how to make efforts even if the others do not.

Umbert respects all these rules, they contribute to the savoir-vivre with others, and to the well-being of all, wherever you are.
