    Your Manners Reflect

    the way you feel about yourself . I could fill this page with why you should have good manners but the people who need to read it wont and the ones who do read it may not need it , so I'll save myself the time

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    What Is Their Problem ?

    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...

    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...

    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...
