    Where'd They Go?

    I'm not even specifying being curse free (because that would be impossible for me) but mainly being cordial to others. What happened to the polite smile, the hello's and the occasional "how are you doing?" all with a GENUINE tone of voice. What happened to opening doors for...

    A Man's Manners Are Mirror In Which He Shows His Portrait

    Good manners are not innate,good manners are taught and learned. Are we all just that much angered and busy that we can sacrifice good manners!?It seems like it's easier to be rude and it's harder to be polite. Manners might seems old fashioned but they are one of those things...

    Seriously!!!

    Whatever happened to simple please and thank you?  For holding the door open for someone?  To being kind and curtious instead of selfish and self-righteous? The world is going to sh*t.  I blame parents.  And before you go throwing stone, yes, I myself am...

    This morning while at school one student pushed

    me and made me drop all my papers, I nearly fell down, and he left without apologising at all. I yelled at him in rage, he probably did not even hear my yells, soon my rage was replaced by sadness, sadness to realise that his behaviour is just another proof that bad manners are...

    You Won't Find Them In My House!

    My roommate has no problem with burping. Also those long ones that come with drinking carbonation. Just to annoy me I think. And the guy doesn't know how to pick up leftovers and empty soda bottles off the coffee table. I don't leave messes myself. And I'm not going to clean...

    Manners Are Taught

    Many people don't expect manners or are taught manners and etiquette. This is something that used to be a cornerstone in our society, but has been dismissed. Manners are important to show and receive respect. Those who don't use their manners don't respect themselves and others...

    Mine Never Went Anywhere

    Chivalry Is Alive And Well In My Little Part Of The World

    It doesn't take a lot to say thank you when someone holds the elevator or the door for you, now does it? Why is it that for most people, their mouths are just glued shut? I feel like telling them "you're very welcome" sometimes or even better, “Speak *** because your...

    Think That It Is Still There Just Not Used Much

    WIth the hustle and bustle of the day going on simple things like "Please" and "Thank You." are not really forgotten but just ignored or skipped.  The kids see this and then they follow in the parents footsteps and don't say it either. The mannors of standing when a woman...
