It does not matter how many corporate luncheons I speak at or business dinners I emcee, someone invariably says, “Is that my water (or bread plate) or yours?” I have two go-to favorites to keep you from ever having to ask that question again:

2. The other is BMW – look down at your place setting, you have YOUR Bread plate, Meal plate and Water glass.
