ha ha, oh well, us older folks will help right?

I was raised in a very strict home ..my mom is so old school. we were very well mannered kids ...as an adult and parent , i have taught my kids manners and they know better when we are out ...specially when we go to relatives or friends...just hope they never forget. this world is so crazy ...rudeness everywhere...how sad =-(

yes,i agree.it is sad that it is fading away.

As a woman, I do the same but somewhat different. WHen I'm going into a storre and see someone will come in right behind me, I hold the door open on the inside until they get to it. Just common decency.<br />
