Office Etiquette

Chewing Gum in the Workplace

Did anyone happen to notice that Monday December 28th was the birthday of chewing gum? If you didn’t, don’t feel bad. I almost missed it as well, probably because as a business etiquette expert, I am not a fan of chewing gum. To me it is something to be done in private and certainly never in the workplace. Yet I never cease to be amazed at many people I see smacking away at their desk, chomping in front of customers or just mindlessly chewing during the business meeting.
