Where have manners gone?

Sunday, December 30, 2012

I was grocery shopping with DH when a man reached his armpit across my face without uttering one word about"Excuse me" or "oh im sorry"I said "Excuse you sir"He rolled his eyes and walked away.It felt like I was the only person with any manners!I was in line at a buffet getting a salad when a lady just walked up and took her turn without waiting for me....Im very easy going and hate to make a big deal but when does it end?Do we act this way in Church?Do we walk out of church and forget about manners?My mama was a big beleiver in acting a certain way rich or poor.She would box our ears if we were any type of rude,to anyone!I hope if this is you that its a change that gets made in 2013! emoticon SUSAN

    My pet peeve is when you hold a door open for someone and they don't acknowledge it at all!!!! If they don't say anything i will say "YOU'RE WELCOME" so everyone around us can hear it...sometimes I will then get a Thank you :)

    It really is terrible, isn't it? Fortunately though, I moved to one of the most pleasant, friendly cities on the planet I think -- I just can't get over how considerate people are here of one another. It's been a very refreshing change!

    I think we all have noticed this, but I remember what my parents taught me--always be considerate of others and I do. emoticon

    Unfortunately, Americans are getting a reputation for not having manners. I agree with you. I wish we would return to the days when manners reigned.

    Unfortunately this world is riddled with those types because all sense of manners and values have been tossed out the window long ago.
