Thank you, Melanie! I'm really glad you asked the question. I'd never seen a Medium writing question worded in the frame of etiquette. So, this was a really fun opportunity for me.

It is always great finding our friends in the cafeteria! :) Feel free to reach out if you have more questions and/or I missed something here.
