Mum will be pleased!

I'm the picture of politeness -- or, I am, according to the outcome of this game, in which you're asked to imagine that you're a Victorian gentleman or lady. Of course, I chose the female role, thinking how hard can it be? Not too hard, as it turned out, and it would seem that some of my mother's lessons in ladylike behaviour as I was growing up have obviously not been a complete waste of her time and effort.

I asked another lady to dance. There was gossip.

God, you sad case! Dance with another woman? That is the single most saddest, desparate thing in the world...I wouldn't be caught dead!

Oops! I just spilled some lovely Belgian beer on the ground...Mum would not be pleased to hear that. And it's not the spilling, mind, but the drinking of beer STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOTTLE! (or trying to, and I'm sure I could have pulled it off if I hadn't been imagining you waltzing across the ballroom with your wallflower cousin, too!).

I felt sorry for her.

I expect teacups rattled in many a posh salon after that.

Why yes, you might not have been too welcome at any of the other ladies' at homes for a good few days, I'd wager; for fear your gauche behaviour might rub off on their nubile and impressionable young daughters of the house.

OTOH, they might have just ignored it, and act like it never happened...
