I would say when you're up in pieces and you offer a draw to be nice and they don't take it. It's because of what if you had to be somewhere like eat dinner or something?
Good chess etiquette is the same as for any sport or game;
be a gracious winner, a generous loser and remember its just a game.
Poor etiquette is expecting your opponent to adhere to your own unwritten rules; typically regarding stalemates, resignations and draw offers.
