Book Description

October 22, 2013

The funniest, New York Times bestselling southern humorist delivers a book of etiquette for the modern age.


Celia Rivenbark's seventh book, Rude Bitches Make Me Tired, is an always sensible and mildly profane etiquette manual for real-life manners quandaries ranging from how to deal with braggy playground moms to wondering if you can have sex in your aunt's bed on vacation to correctly grieving the dearly departed (hint: It doesn't include tattoos or truck decals). In this book, Celia Rivenbark:
  • Navigates the agonies of check splitting (“who had the gorgonzola crumbles and should we really care?”)
  • Explores the baffling aspects of airline travel (“Recline Monster” and other animals)
  • Discusses the art of the visit (always leave them wanting more . . . much more)
  • Expounds upon gym and locker etiquette (“no one wants to talk to you while you’re buck naked”)
  • Examines the conundrums of office manners (Loud talkers, cake hawkers, and Britney Sue’s unfortunate cyst)
  • And much more!
Good manners have never been more fun!

  3. This sounds like one we all need to read. It's the rich ones that make me tired though. There is a certain area in our town where if you come across a blond driving a Mercedes, you know that to her the cell phone is more important than stopping at an inconvenient stop light and unless a car is being driven by someone from the country club she doesn't even acknowledge there is another car on the road. Perhaps a title for another book!

  4. Ann- I love Celia's work and I have read every single one. She is a lot like Dave Barry. Well, I think I know the person you are talking about and you are lucky there is only one. I have the whole real housewives thing going on in my neighborhood.
