    I Always Do

    Manners Maketh The Man Or Woman

    Manners cost nothing. But good manners are priceless. Good manners show respect and decency. These few words speak so much about a person's character. A simple please can make almost anyone happy to help. A simple thank you can make a good deed feel worthwhile. I'm astonished...

    You don't have to listen to me,

    or help me, or support me, you aren't obliged to carry on doing these things, unappreciated and taken for granted. I say 'Thank you' more than 'Please', because I rarely ask for anything, but I always think it...

    I'm well mannered. I say please,

    thank you, yes ma'am, no ma'am, yes sir, no sir. I hold open doors. I offer my seat to an elder and will stand, or take a seat on the floor. The list goes on.
