You must mind your manners if you care about being somewhere in your life. If you don’t then it can quickly come back to bite you in the behind. Always remember to be polite and to respect your elders. Be kind. Don’t be rude.

Are these manners things I’ve always had in me? Maybe, maybe not. Did they fall out from the sky or did we learn them at school in the same way we learn that adding one and one makes two? If you forget your manners, does it mean you’ve lost your manners? Does that even make sense to anyone?

Manners, fluffy, manners.
The only thing you’re lacking:
“ONE SIMPLY DOES NOT–”
“oh whatever, yeah I’ll just go ship those two together. mkay. byeeeee”
“ONE SIMPLY DOES NOT GO–”
“OH GOD DID YOU SEE HOW CANON THEY ARE–ASDFJKL”

Manners. Human nature. We, from a young age are brought up to learn, manners are one of the basics. have respect for others and in return be respected back.

Manners? Manners! Pshh… Who needs manners?! They’re overrated I say. They’re useless I say. They give people a pious look about the face and a turned up nose. Let us just be ourselves, I say.

“Don’t you have any manners?” she asked with a roll of her eyes as she let out a barely audible scoff.
“Nope,” he laughed. He stoof up and dusted himself off.

are what someone is thought in a very early age. It is how you treat people and who others treat you. If you have no manners you will never became anyone or go no where. Manners is the basic built of society. Without it society would not function.

Manners are lost in todays society. Children are constantly picking up horrible habbits that this generation is becoming all too familiar with. Not saying please and thank you is the beginning of it, but the end is much scarier.

He’s an elegant boy; his movements subtle, laced with quiet arrogance and an uncanny secret knowledge of the grand scheme of things. He has a hidden smirk, as if he knows the world’s story from beginning to end. He watches people. They never watch him back.
It’s funny how the world misses out on so much, when they can just stare at this boy and see grace, beauty, and arrogant little smiles. It’s funny how I can see so much with just the way he picks up his coffee, smiling like the world doesn’t matter and time doesn’t matter and I…
“Oh, where are my manners?” he says. “I don’t think I particularly care, but what’s your name?”

Manners are important in our world. Without manners we could hardly function. What happens when you don’t say please and thank you? Well, most of the time you leave people feeling offended. At times adding a polite word here or there is just a polite thing to do, you make people feel like they matter because you are making the effort to use your manners.
By P on 08.10.2012
The one thing I cannot abide is badly mannered people. There is no excuse for it and we would do well to remember that a little smile goes a long way and a thank you is wealth indeed.

Manners? Do I need more manners? I feel like I’ve just written about manners… but that can’t be right, can it? You don’t write about manners multiple times in a row. I mean how much can you actually write about manners? The word itself has two ‘n’s in it, and an s.
Manners are an integral part of a person’s personality. This is the biggest thing that determines whether I respect a person. I live every day life hoping to appear polite to people. Sometimes I slip up.

It was so loud that it looked like a thunder nearby, making the cristal glasses and the fancy dishware tremble on the long dinner table.

Du kannst die Dinge immer auf ganz verschiedene Weisen sehen und tun. Natürlich kannst du ganz unauffällig normal in ein Geschäft gehen, auswählen, was du kaufen willst, alles in einen Korb sortieren, an der Kasse auf das Band packen, bezahlen und mit den Waren nach Hause gehen. Aber du könntest auch Dinge von zu Hause mit Preisschildchen versehen und sie im Geschäft in die Regale packen.

It’s polite to say please it’s polite to say thanks,
But what do you know of Chivalry,
It’s not just please or thanks
Chivalry is important too you see.

“It’s bad manners to announce yourself like that,” she said with a disgruntled sniff.
“I’ll be sure to keep that in mind when I ever have to do something like this again.”
By Aubra URL on 08.10.2012
Miss Manners. She is always telling other people what to do, but what does she do? I mean, is her life so great. Do people like her? I rather think not. I’m guessing she’s a miserable woman… a woman who is close to despair… someone who will likely commit suicide some day. So there, Miss Manners.
By Dave Brock on 08.10.2012
people dont have them any more. They are all self consumed. some just fear not getting a positive reaction. If people would just practice them once ina while regardless of the out come people may possibly be nicer to each other

yeah i suck at this. talk to much need to learn more. etiquette should be on my bucket list. such grace and poise, i wish i could do this, but more so i can’t.
By jaide on 08.10.2012
standard manners include the way one talks and behaves in public. manners tell us how a person really is and especially where he comes from.
By mitali topkar on 08.10.2012
This is something people do not use if they even have them anymore. The only people who seem to portray them is the upper echelon of society who are always tagged as uptight. Although, having manners is sought after because it shows one’s respect for others and in doing so, demands some form of respect from others whether or not we are aware that we give it.

manners make the man
and the woman too
but how are the manners made?
manners are made through education
through learning from life’s hard knocks
manners are made when we strive away
even when the going gets rough
manners are made when we choose to create
when everything is turning to dust
manners are made when we cheer the day
when we seem out of luck
manners are not about being polite
not just about etiquette
manners are about attitude
about giving the world your best!

Let’s have some tea now.

as soon as I think about manners, my Mom is the first person to come to my mind. Most of my good manners today is due to my Mom’s emphasis. She has always asked me to behave good in public. But I cultivated some of Bad manners as well thanks to my friends.

Way in which one lives.
our behavior is governed by it.
IT is both positive and negative.

Manners can be enforced on us by strict rules and a painfully huge fee in case they were not fulfilled. This can be a way to get a better society.

One of the most disregarded deed. It is acquired through the environment’s influence and of the family itself. Manners. Human beings tend to forget how it is to be done.

Politeness. A way of acting. There is such a things as manners, my son. They told me that. It has something to do with class, good breeding or the appearance of good breeders. I have no manners. My table manners are horrific. I am not well mannered, at dinner, at the beach, anywhere. Is it a lack of discipline?
By The Bruiser on 08.10.2012
She had enough of thinking about how to behave, of following rules. The thought of countless rebellous young women in films or books, the cliché she embodied now, made her flinch. Still, there was no way she could bear all this any longer. She closed her eyes and slowly stepped forward.
By Diana Mooncrown URL on 08.10.2012
The young woman stood appalled by his manners. Who did this man think he was, so close to her face that she could smell the liquer on his breath? Why did he think he had any right to speak to her this way. Was it her outfit? Her demenor, or just her.

In a manner of a child you do many many things just as you are supposed to do as a grown up in order for the world to be a better place. The sad thing is that in time we forget about all manners but those which will make us look only “better, faster, prettier, more handsome, richer” than other grownups do.
By Jolly URL on 08.10.2012
Manners are something people today don’t seem to have. Espeacially younger people and teens.
By Orion URL on 08.10.2012
Manners are an important part of life. Without them people will think you are a complete ass or just don’t know how to live properly. Manners can also help you get into things and they repay in in the end. Manners are not difficult if you understand them. They are as simple as opening a door for someone.

I tied his shoelaces neatly, bow centered. He skipped along to school, fresh and tidy, shirt pressed and tucked in tight.
Oh, how I miss your manners. Your old school style, right before the sadness kicked in. The button-ups, the quips and quirks.
