    Please and thank you show respect to others.

    i always say my pleases

    and thank you's because i think good manners are important. It shows that you are respectable and courteous to others. It's really not that hard, it's being polite && good manners are also very attractive in my opinion.

    No matter what the situation I do my best to stay cool and show respect even if that person doesn't deserve it.

    Always

    I was raised in a house where I could get away with a lot of stuff.  However, I always had to say please and thank you.  It annoyed me some as I grew up, but now that I"m older I'm glad my parents forced that on me.I think you should always be polite to somebody.  That is...

    ​It's bad enough, isn't it,

    that we live in a sound-bite world rife with the refuse of self-righteous conspicuous consumption? Must we also put up with the abandonment of manners, decorum, and etiquette? Saying please and thank you is the very least I can do.

    I Always Do

    As cheesy as it sounds, good manners really do go a long way. I was raised with great emphasis being placed on the importance of being courteous to others, and I think it's formed my character in the best way possible. There is nothing worse than, for instance, holding the door...
