    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.

    Others Before Yourself

    In my opinion, Good manners is thinking about the comfort and needs of others before thinking of your self.

    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.

    While going to work in the bitter cold and  slipping on my arse in the icy snow bestowed upon us - and hurting my elbow in the process - I was relieved to finally finish my day's graft, and trying to ignore the throbbing pain, when on the way home I stopped off at my favourite...

    I Like When People Are Polite

    I was raised being taught manners.

    And I'm glad I was. When I got to know my Dad's family at 16, I noticed my Dad didn't teach his other two kids manners. They were often rude to me and at the dinner table. I was appalled how impolite they were and disappointed that my Dad wasn't raising them right. Its like...

    This is pathetic. Does anyone out there get

    pissed off when anyone ( mother in law ) picks up an expensive book you've just had as a christmas present and starts looking at it for ages. I'm incensed its a special present from my husband. Am I being angry for no reason?

    Manners Are Powerful, Not Pretentious

    “I mean, good manners don’t cost nothin’, do they?” (Pink Floyd, Dark side of the moon).Manners are powerful.  I had no idea when my mother drilled me in ‘please’, ‘thank you’ and how to eat properly at a table... that she was giving me a gift in life, something...

    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.

    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.

    The Making Of A Man Or A Woman

    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.

    They Cost Nothing But Mean So Much...

    I hate it when people show bad manners. I especially dislike rude children. I work with children and am very keen to teach them the important of please and thank you's. Children are the future and they need to learn the basics in life such as being polite to others.

    so little (well most of us) to the point where this experience could probly also fall under the category of a pet peeve because when someone can't talk what .245 seconds to say thank you it drives me crazy. I was at the mall leaving a coach store they got those heavy glass doors...

    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...

    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...

    Yes Ma'Am

    Growing up in the south, we were raised with manners from an early age. "Yes ma'am, yes sir, please, and thank you" weren't just words to us. They were the very foundation of our ever expanding vocabulary. We didn't have to be told to respect others or to treat others the way we...

    Why are manners so few

    Why Is So Strange To Have Manners Or Be Polite Now???

    Why are manners considered a sign of weakness now??? I mean when we're younger we are practically taught them till the point we are doing them w/out even noticing. Why is it so weird to be polite and have manners today?
