In a dining room, place your napkin in your chair and get up at the lead of the senior person. Get up
1. In social life, whenever a senior person, visitor, or a woman visits your table. Remain standing as long as a senior person does, or until you are specifically asked to do otherwise. Stand as long as any woman near is standing (even when asked to do otherwise.)
2. In business, a senior woman may say, “This is business, you can sit. (Do it.”) Remain standing as long as any man or peer who is talking remains standing.
3. To answer any woman who is standing who addresses a remark. Stand the entire time anyone in your party is engaged in conversation with a woman at your table, no matter how long. You can even eat standing. You may omit standing, when a woman who is working in public comes to your table unless she is also a close friend.
4. To be introduced; a woman is to stand for introductions to people senior by position, considerably older, important state officials, and/or their wives, and for clergymen.
5. Get up when someone says "Get up; we need to take a five to ten-minute break." What is being done while you are away is called “Correcting the table.”
Before temporarily leaving the table place flatware in the rest (or finished) position for the style in which you are eating; get up from the right, where practical; place your napkin in your chair. Return to your seat from the left, when returning to sit down.
6. Get up or rise halfway, when a woman gets up to leave your table, to acknowledge her departure; you can omit getting up with a woman at table is also a peer, all other women, as a rule, will forgive you. And get up.
7. At the conclusion of a meeting.
 If you have to leave the table to take care of a personal item: telephone, text, or to handle something on your own, leave the table between courses, if possible.
Place your napkin in your chair. Say, “Excuse me.”
