We are joined by advice columnist Amy Alkon this week to discuss manners. That doesn’t mean holding-up-your-pinky type etiquette, but giving-an-appropriate-hug style niceness. Whether it’s a time thief on the phone, a chair hog on a plane, or a non-waver in traffic, you’ll learn how to set boundaries and live happier despite our evolutionary predispositions. Never have an awkward telemarketer situation again!
