Bad manners sometimes look so innocent
Unfortunately good manners are not the usual guests in the modern society. Nowadays everybody points out how important it is to be open, direct, honest neglecting the feelings and thoughts of surrounding people. Whatever was considered weak bringing up is now called individuality, and the Bad Manners or habits get to be the gem of the personality. However, the traditions of old times are still here, and there are some things that should never be done in public, no matter how bright and individual personality you have:
Open Rudeness. You can be straightforward, but don’t pretend that nobody gets affected by your words and actions. Nobody canceled simple “thank you”and “please”. And please, avoid asking too rude questions, as it is none of your business.
Cell phone calls. Okay, cellphone became a member of the family already, you know. You take it even to the toilet, right? But, whenever you are amidst other people, don’t discuss the latest news from private life on the Phone. Nobody needs to know what a hot chick you got to bend last night, and how much waxing costs on the corner of the street.
Texting. I love restaurants which collect the phones into the basket and then whoever picks up the phone first pays the bill. It is so rude and unexpected to be with friends, colleagues and so on and during the conversation send texts or even worse checking the newsfeed. You know, before the cell phones people could actually talk to each other and had fun.
Let kids misbehave. We all have that neighbor mother, whose kids look like they escaped from the shelter: screaming, fighting and so on. Don’t become such a mother or a father. Kids do need their space for games, but they also need to know when to stop.
Respect the older generation, don’t let the bad language pop out from your mouth and be kind. Let’s change our society for better starting with ourselves.
