    I think manners are very important especially

    the way you treat others. Treat others as you want to be treated but helping others especially if they need help like helping open doors and etc helps others as well. You will be rewarded by doing this. You should also be rewarded by a good spanking if you don't. It is...

    Even though you disagree with the fact

    that I'm more awesome than you and everything I say is law, doesn't mean you're allowed to behave like a Neanderthal.

    I think above all manners are really important.

    I feel that there is a difference between being literate and being educated. The fine line between the two is that an educated person is not only literate but is also a person of character and relevance.

    A Manners Freak.

    I am a lot of things when it comes to speaking and writing. Most people who know me well, know that I am a grammar and spell freak. I never use SMS speak. I don't understand half of it. I'm constantly correcting people when they use bad grammar in their speach or writing, or if...

    Manners !

    A well-mannered individual is like an

    individual with good personal hygiene. If you think that attribute isn't important, wait 'til you've met someone who doesn't have it. I'm not talking about using the correct fork or accidentally double-dipping a chip. I'm talking about saying 'please' and 'thank you'. I'm...

    The Making Of A Man Or A Woman

    There is an unspoken gratitude and a barely perceptible, but very real, respect that I hold for anyone with manners.  A door held open, a friendly smile or an offer to help makes this fast-paced, high pressure life a litte more bearable for us all.  Courteousy...

    Manners Maketh Man!

    I catch the bus to work every morning. Because I have a season pass, I don't need to buy a ticket every time I board the bus, but I do always make a point of saying "Good morning" to the driver and making eye contact and/or smiling: I would never dream of simply waving my pass at...

    Why are manners so few

    Real manners. The kind

    where you treat people like you would like to be treated. Opening doors and eating with the correct piece of silverware is nice but manners are a whole lot more than the surface appearance of manners. Though that is a nice addition.

    It seems some like to hide behind a computer

    as they can get away with being a rude jack@ss that way. I think manners are important and treating people with respect (until they give you a reason not to) should be the norm even on social media. That is not the world we live in, unfortunately.

    BRAT Are you a brat or has someone called you a

    I don't think this is just some "southern

    hospitality" sort of mannerism. I know that where you are raised impacts how you treat other people but everyone deserves to be respected. You say "yes ma'am, no ma'am, yes sir, no sir" because people deserve respect- not because they have more money or power or that they're...

    Please..... And Thank You!

    Essential aspects of civilised social interaction are good manners. Here in France you will be frowned on if when entering a shop, like a boulangerie, you do not say 'bonjour!'- good morning! It costs nothing, and does so much for social cohesion to be polite and amenable to...

    Don'T Forget Your Manners.

    Far too often, in my experience, people walk around with their heads down, ignoring everyone else around them. Self absorption – whether in technology or a daily to-do list – causes people to forget that others exist apart from themselves. It is important to recognize that...

    What happened to 'please'

    and 'thank you'? They seem to have slowly disappeared. Manners cost nothing, and to me, they're very important. I notice the little things.
