I feel you, this is one of my pet peeves...and a lot of the fault lies within us. We should demand good manners from others wether it's form your family, your kids (especially your kids) or strangers and also model those good behaviors so maybe people will learn form us.
I don't deal with them at all.
I usually just kick them in the nads.
Why your name is "Despised" is quite the mystery
just TELL them you want them to say please and thank you and that you want them to have manners. they aren't mind readers.
depends on how bad they are-if i find what they say insulting, or think what they have said was really unnessary and hurtful-i will tell them that it was uncalled for
I vote that we change the name of "common" courtesy..<br />
because it is not common.. let's call it "polite courtesy" or something like that. just something different..
