    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...

    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...

    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...

    Mine Never Went Anywhere

    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...

    I sometimes wonder what is the point in living. I really fill that human happiness was not considered in the the design of creation and life truly has no meaning.
