    Please and Thank You

    Recently while I was out to lunch at a fairly nice restaurant the man next door picked up his cloth napkin and blew his nose into it.  I literally could not eat my entree because I was so disgusted.  Manners to me involve a lot more than please and thank you.  It...

    They Cost Us Nothing And Can Mean So Much

    Good manners like old fashioned respect for self and others costs nothing, Please and Thank you, sending thank you notes for gifts or just to show appreciation, the opening of a door, the smile to a passing friend or stranger, shaking hands, acknowledgment of others, not being...

    Basic Civility.

    I see good manners as a sign of respect. It is really as simple as that. If you have no respect for someone there is no real incentive to employ good manners in their presence. I believe the opposite is also true. I believe that if you have respect for someone, you will be well...

    Manners

    I appreciate and practice good manners. Please and thank you, mam and sir, and such.   In the south... manners are taught to children in school, along with respect. When I moved back to the midwest, I found a significant difference. My sister got detention for...

    Busy, Busy...Busy.

    So how exactly did we all end up so aggressive and intolerant? Why do we no longer live in a world like “Leave it to Beaver?” One theory is simply that we’ve all become far too busy to care anymore about manners. Parents are busy trying to make enough money to pay their...

    I Have High Standards. Yes, Why Not?

    I want to help bring them back to our society. My new year's resolution: I don't tolerate rudeness anymore. I don't have to be rude back. Simply say, "May I speak to your manager?" Then say, "Your employee talked to me like I was scum." or whatever. I go to a business and...

    Have a Care!

    Sometimes it seems to me that in our attempt to be tolerant of others we let others ride rough-shot over what are the everyday good manners  of all, rich and poor, black and white. Over here there is a lot of concern about Swine Flu - which can kill and yet many cannot be...

    Since

    I'm not too much into rules and formalities and I hate the thought that it's imperative to behave.  And I love impertinence and a big mouth sometimes a lot.  Sometimes it's even very charming and almost irresistible.  A famous case is that of the rude and...

    Polite And Carry A Sharp Blade

     I am still polite. I still carry a sharp blade but I am less likely to use my blade since I have become a “reformed” sociopath. My oldest friend is rude. This is a bit funny because he is a wimp who would never fight or hurt anyone.I guess I am polite...

    Let Me Tell You Where to Put That Cell Phone! *wink*

    Perhaps it is because of my southern upbringing, but I absolutely will not date a woman who has bad manners. I am a lady and will only accept being treated as such. Not much can make me grow more weak in the knees than old-fashioned social graces. Holding the door open for a...

    It's A Sign Of Breeding

    I was raised to believe that what you do and how you act reflects upon your family and your upbringing. Luckily my parents instilled in me proper manners. However, it sickens me to see people- regardless of their station in life- acting like jackanapses! Children and parents...

    What Happened To Good Manners?

    Yesterday I had to take my children to the doctors and get some blood drawn on each of them. The waiting room was awfully small with only a handful of seats. My son sat down in an empty chair and my daughter wanted to stand by me. An elderly lady then walks in with a cane. She...
