Usually when we go out by car, we simply sit around, but when we ride with leaders, we have to learn some common sense of etiquette ~ let's go with Xiaobian!
In the more formal occasions, when you take a car, you must distinguish the superiority and inferiority of the seat, and take a seat in the proper place. In informal situations, however, there is no need for formality. The rules of seating etiquette can be summed up as "four for respect, three for top". "Four for respect" refers to the respect of guests, elders, leaders and ladies. These four types of people should be on the table; "three for convenience, safety and respect". The three principles are the most important.
I. train order
In terms of etiquette, the superiority and inferiority of the seats on a car mainly depend on the following four factors.
(I) car driver
There are generally two kinds of drivers: one is the car owner, the other is a full-time driver. At present, most of the cars seen in China are two row seats and three row seats. The differences in the rank and inferiority of the cars are as follows:
(1) when the owner drives in person:
When the owner or leader drives in person, it is generally called social vehicle, and the upper seat is the passenger seat. In this case, the front seat is generally upper, the back seat is lower; the right seat is respected, and the left seat is inferior. This kind of sitting reflects the principle of "respect first", the respect of the guests to the drivers, and the equality, intimacy and friendliness.
1. Double row five seat car, the order is: front passenger seat & rarr; rear right seat & rarr; rear left seat & rarr; rear middle seat.
2. Double row six seat car, the order is: front right seat & rarr; front middle seat & rarr; rear right seat & rarr; rear left seat & rarr; rear middle seat.
3. Three row seven seat car, the order is: front passenger & rarr; rear right & rarr; rear left & rarr; rear middle & rarr; middle right & rarr; middle left.
4. Three row nine seat car, the order is: front right seat & rarr; front middle seat & rarr; middle right seat & rarr; middle middle middle seat & rarr; middle left seat & rarr; rear right seat & rarr; rear middle seat & rarr; rear left seat.
The most important thing when taking the car driven by the owner is not to neglect the owner, that is to say, the front seat cannot be 'vacant', and someone must be there to show his company. When a man drives his own car, if his wife or girlfriend is present, she should generally sit in the passenger seat.
Ö etiquette tips:
When the host drives his friend and his wife home, the man among his friends must sit in the front passenger seat and be accompanied by the host, instead of sitting in the back row with his wife, which would be impolite. If there are more than one person sitting at the same time, after the guests who sit in the front seat get off the train, the guests who sit in the back seat should sit in the front seat instead, which is the most easily neglected etiquette.
(2) when the full-time driver drives:
As it is more convenient to get on and off the vehicle on the right side, it is necessary to follow the principle of right respect and left inferiority. At the same time, the rear row is the upper and the front row is the lower. In the reception of very important guests, such as government officials, important foreign guests, and important entrepreneurs, the seat is the driver's back seat at this time, because the location has good privacy and high safety factor.
1. Double row five seat car, the order is: right rear seat & rarr; left rear seat & rarr; middle rear seat & rarr; copilot.
2. Double row six seat car, the order is: right rear seat & rarr; left rear seat & rarr; middle rear seat & rarr; right front seat & rarr; middle front seat.
3. Three row seven seat car, the order is: rear right seat & rarr; rear left seat & rarr; rear middle seat & rarr; middle right seat & rarr; middle left seat & rarr; front passenger seat.
4. Three row nine seat car, the order is: middle row right seat & rarr; middle row middle seat & rarr; middle row left seat & rarr; rear row right seat & rarr; rear row middle seat & rarr; rear row left seat & rarr; front row right seat & rarr; front row middle seat.
Ö etiquette tips:
Women should not sit in the center of the opposite sex in cars.
(II) types of cars
The above method is mainly applicable to two seat and three seat cars, but not to other special types of cars.
Jeep, or jeep for short, is a light off-road car. It's mostly four seater. The jeep has a high chassis and high power. Its main function is off-road. Its shock absorption and suspension are too hard. It bumps badly in the back row. No matter who drives the jeep, the order of seats in the jeep is: copilot, rear right seat, rear left seat.
Multi seat cars refer to large and medium-sized cars with four or more rows of seats. No matter who drives it, the former row is top, the latter row is bottom; the right is respected, the left is inferior; and the distance from the front door is used to rank the specific seat.
Taking a medium-sized car with 17 seats in six rows as an example, the order should be: right seat in the second row & rarr; middle seat in the second row & rarr; left seat in the second row & rarr; right seat in the third row & rarr; middle seat in the third row & rarr; left seat in the third row & rarr; right seat in the fourth row & hellip;
(III) safety factor of passenger cars
In a sense, taking a car should give priority to safety. In a car, the back seat is much safer than the front seat. The most unsafe seat is the right seat in the front row. The safest seat is the left seat (after the driver's seat) or the middle seat.
When the owner drives in person, the reason why he takes the passenger seat as the seat is not only to show respect for the owner, but also to show that he is in the same boat. When it is driven by a special person, the copilot's seat is generally called the attendant's seat. Usually, the people sitting here are mostly the attendant, interpreter, guard, etc.
In view of this, women should not be allowed to sit in the front seat of cars driven by full-time drivers, nor should children and elders sit here.
(IV) personal wishes of the guests on the car
Generally, when taking a car on a formal occasion, please ask the elder, the lady and the guests to take their seats at the upper seat, which is a courtesy to the other party. However, more importantly, at the same time, don't forget to respect the wishes and choices of the guests themselves, and put this article in the most important position. It should be determined that: the choice of the passenger car seat of the guest must be respected. Where the guest sits, that is to say, it should be determined that it is the upper seat. Even if the guests don't understand the seats and sit in the wrong place, don't point out or correct them easily. At this time, be sure to say "follow the guest".
2. Boarding and alighting etiquette
In general, for the sake of respect, we should let the venerable get on first, then get off. We should invite the venerable to get on first, to get on the seat, and the inferior to get off first, to open the door for the venerable. When both men and women are in the same car, the man should open the door for the woman on his own initiative. When attending business occasions, if the position of the man is higher than that of the woman, it is unnecessary to pay attention. However, in specific situations, we still need to adapt to the actual situation.
For example, when escorting leaders to go out for business, there are many people who go together, and the other side is enthusiastic to see them off. At this time, we should take the initiative to thank the other side and get on the bus first, because the central link of the farewell ceremony should be between the main leaders of both sides. All people have to wait for the leader to get on the bus and say goodbye to the host, which will dilute the farewell atmosphere between the leaders of both sides, and get on the bus It can also be chaotic. For another example, if the reception party has prepared a grand welcome ceremony when it arrives, it should wait for the leader to get off and the accompanying personnel to get off again.
III. ride etiquette
When riding, do not arbitrarily move the facilities in the car; consciously keep the car clean and tidy, do not leave the garbage in the car; do not arbitrarily take off the coat, and keep proper appearance.
When taking the passenger car driven by the host, do not leave the passenger seat empty. In case of the situation that the front row guests get off midway, the back seat guests should take the initiative to supplement the passenger seat.
When leaders are riding together, do not sleep in the car if they do not have a rest.
