Synecdoche and metalepsis are considered specific types of metonymy.
April 10, at 3: The next up from me was Rose. We were US based but ultimately it was a European company and most upper management was based in Europe; they came to the States once a month. During these visits there would be fancy dinners out, various team members invited each time.
Being young and poor a free meal was as valuable to me as hobknobing with the higher ups, so I always coveted an invite. As time wore on, I consistently got invited, others not so much.
Having a casual lunch with Rose one day I had occasion to see her utensil handling. And all my dinners paid off in perks, like a 3-day trip to Europe for one 4 hour meeting I easily could have called in to.
Rose had a chip on her shoulder about how I was the favorite, but her work was solid, it was our table manners I believe that tipped the scales. Le Sigh April 10, at 3: So if, especially early on in their careers as people are still learning and honing their workplace knowledge, it seems, I dunno, a little gross, with a likely dose of classism.
Some etiquette is just there to help us all be courteous of transpose letters when writing a business around us. But pausing over a fork? Which bread plate to use?
How many bread plates are there by the way? Hell, I still do that at 35 and you know what? But to just quietly exclude someone over it? WillyNilly April 10, at 3: I paused and watched, and thereby learned.
She just forged ahead with the wrong bread plate dinner after dinner until she was no longer invited to dinner. I think at the end of the day, the whole thing just raises my hackles because there are serious class overtones on this, and just…I dunno.
I like hosting and I like making people feel welcome and at home — this stuff feels like the opposite of that. Plus, we talk all the time about how managers should proactively point out things they think might be obvious to their younger staff.
Bread plates are to your left. If you grab the one to your right, the person to your right now has to ask around for a bread plate. This always messed me up as forks, knives, spoons and water glasses all follow a number of letter rule: Bread 5 to the left 4 bugs me.
Le Sigh April 10, at 4: I know a chunk of this stuff is rooted in keeping serving and eating running smoothly and allowing the dinner to proceed without constant interruptions.
But I think that actually gets back at what I was saying earlier — I want people to feel comfortable, so if done well without pretension, it can be a good thing. When it gets into hall monitor territory, esp. Or just not come back the more mature option.
Penny Lane April 10, at 4: The gist of it is that this young man, from an impoverished Appalachian background, gets himself to Yale Law School against all odds. While he is there, his professors clearly see that he is a person of potential, etc. It would have behooved Rose to observe and learn; it also might have been something that — if that important to her future — a good manager could take 10 minutes to point out to her.
These rules have a lot of roots in class not eating with your mouth closed—I mean stuff like forks and bread platesso I do think that if you grew up with this kind of stuff and just assume learning forks is the norm, then cutting people out of economic opportunities over it despite other qualifications they have, there is classism at play.
MM April 10, at 4: Exclusions upon exclusions, when it comes to formal etiquette the major purpose of which has always been to create signifiers of exclusivity and wealth anyway.
