    I find it weird how easily people forget their

    manners on internet. To me it's just natural to greet someone when starting a conversation. Ask the person's name , unless you wish to keep anonymity. I mean who on earth starts conversation with "you are hot" or calling you hun, baby, sweetheart in the very first message. I...

    Indeed. Manners seem to be old story nowadays.

    This new generation, including mine, suffer from a lack of real education. Not talking about scholar education, talking about education that teaches you that burping in public or cussing is WRONG. Education that teaches you to respect your elders, to be polite in all...

    Manners Cost Nothing, But Require Something Even More Valuable

    Humility. Without it, there is no way to recognize that all us humans are ultimately dependent on the kindness of others. Lack of manners is the simple, lazy way of broadcasting to everyone around you, that you value yourself so much above everybody else that the norms don't...

    Respect

    I don't know why people find it so hard to say please and thank you. Even my own family can't seem to figure out how to have manners. It's not like it puts you out or costs you anything to treat people with kindness and respect.That's one of the things that bothers me so much...

    I try my best to present with good manners,

    to everyone. I expect the same. Truth is, I'm a sensitive creature, too much sometimes especially when it comes to matters of the heart. I'll take my sadness and try to make something good come from it.

    I Agree

    I agree. And people who don't use them are selfish and thoughtless, and I generally don't need to be around people like that. Charlotte

    I hate Wal Mart. It's like,

    as soon as people get into the parking lot, their IQ drops about 50 points. They lose all sense of courtesy, and they forget all about personal space. Was it always this way, or am I getting pickier as I age???

    It bothers me that old fashioned manners are

    eroding away with the newer generation and whatnot. Around here, it's almost rare to see a teenager or young adult offer to shake your hand or use Ma'am or Sir in conversation. Even my own generation barely does this. I mean, c'mon, it's not that hard to do.

    Old fashioned perhaps.

    Manners

    Are the only things I know that cost nothing but are worth a millions dollars to many as manners make then feel so much better to have someone talk to them with respect and true feelings? Many use all the  words but their actions if you really look to tell a different story...
