Re: Mistakes that taught you a lesson for life!
Treating people with respect is one of those "you know it when you see it" types of things. How upset can someone get if you are sincerely respectful but the movements aren't perfect? It seems like, as long as you are dealing with reasonable people, being sincerely respectful will have you covered in the etiquette department 90% of the time. The rest is just details designed to teach you to be sincerely respectful in the first place.
