A Humorist take on Modern (Southern) Etiquette Dilemmas

Rude Bitches Make Me Tired: Slightly Profane and Entirely Logical Answers to Modern Etiquette DilemmasRude Bitches Make Me Tired: Slightly Profane and Entirely Logical Answers to Modern Etiquette Dilemmas by Celia Rivenbark

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was told to check out this local author by a colleague. Admittedly the title was enough to pick it up off the shelves for further investigation. While it is advertised as being a modern day etiquette book, I found it to be more along the lines of a lengthy newspaper humorist column.

The format is set in question and answer format and while I don’t believe I will change any of my own personal mannerisms as a result of reading, I do think I have now been properly prepped as to how to behave if I ever meet the author in person.

I did find myself snorting in amusement over some of her observations, especially as I am familiar with the area. Her humor is very southern-centric and may not resonate well with other parts of the country.

Overall I found it to be an enjoyable quick read.
