After the publication of our megaguide to modern etiquette earlier this year, we decided to open the project up to our subscribers and ask them about their own social dilemmas. And they had plenty! “How do I politely refuse the ‘Do you have a moment for the environment?’ people?” “What do you do when someone accidentally sends you a rude text about you?” “Is a man supposed to walk a woman home after a date?” We answered those questions, and many more, in a limited-run, subscriber-only newsletter, The New York Helpline.
Now, with the arrival of summer, there are many new quandaries to consider: Who gets to decide the AC temp? How do you get your beach-house guests to leave? Is it rude not to shower twice a day? So we’re bringing back The New York Helpline newsletter for a special summer edition. Existing subscribers can sign up here. Not a subscriber yet? Click here to get started.
