A Life Well Lived - Having Style 

Ask for a favor

By Karen J. Bannan

It's best to ask for a favor in person or on a regular telephone, with as much advance notice as possible.  Don't launch right into the request. Instead ask the other person first if it's OK to request a favor.  If the answer is yes, watch his expression and body language and listen to his tone of voice.  That way, you'll know if the person's "yes" is sincere and whether it's a good idea to proceed with your request, says Cindy Grosso, founder of the Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette, Inc. in Charleston, South Carolina.
