    It is not always easy in company to speak frankly and if you don't want to be considered a bad- mannered person, you have to watch constantly for signs. It is not easy, for example, to listen for long to any one person. Try in company to take only a fair share of the conversation. If there are two of you, take half of it. When you have said a little, keep quiet, and give your friend a chance to say something. If he does not talk, he probably does not want you to talk either. Many young man or woman talks away, thinking the company is delighted to hear him or her, whereas everyone is really exhausted and angry. Don't think you can say unpleasant things about someone behind his back and not be found out. It is surprising how the remarks usually find their way to the person with your name attached, so to speak. Whatever you say, always assume that the person may overhear and modify your remarks accordingly. All experienced people act in this way.
