Basic Manners

Elena Maria Vidal offers a fantastic reflection on basic manners and I'm glad to say that my late grandfather always taught me that giving up your seat for a lady on a packed bus or train was practically mandatory. The idea of not doing so would have appalled or infuriated him and he was one of the most decent and honourable men I ever met.

  1. Thanks for linking this, but I must say it sets me on fire because too much do I see the way people act to strangers, albeit their own neighbors, statesmen, countrymen, etc etc. and it is very annoying! There is something nice, though, knowing that there are those of us who were raised to be polite or to act courteously still out there!
