    I Can Say Please And Thank You

    I feel like so many people have forgotten or just don't know these words.Lets not forget "bless you,sorry,or (the least common these days) excuse me." Manners should be a class tought in school.

    Always

    I have always been polite.  I'm polite online and offline.  Some say I'm too nice and some get aggravated by my politeness but hey, this is who I am and I cannot break the cycle or my habit.  This is the way I was taught and raised.

    Most Of The Times

    I have decided to be polite only to those who deserve it. If a person treats me badly they don't deserve me being polite to them. But for the most part I love being polite to people.

    I'm Polite

    By nature I'm polite, and that is the bad things about me , because people in this world don't deserve good behavior as far as I'm concern! Yup, some of them deserve of course, but they are very few. People surrounding me doesn't bother about  me and my words as I'm not harsh!

    Yes

    People will always compliment me for that and also that I am friendly as well as being likable. I see no point in being rude or inconsiderate.

    Being Polite Is the Right Thing to Do

    I work in a field that is filled with individuals with some sort of emotional problem. I can't help but think if a lot of problems could have been avoided if someone was polite to an individual at a needed time.

    Lost Art

    I was raised by older parents who always taught "Please", "Thank you", "Yes sir", and "Yes Ma'am". They were strict on these things, also on calling adults by Mr or Mrs and their last names, even if told otherwise by the person it was still respectful. I am a woman who dates...
