As a child growing up, I was always taught how important it was to use my manners. I was to always say please, thank you, excuse me (I used to get the eyebrow from Dad when I burped at the table haha). Working in retail, it seems that manners and chivalry are a thing of the past. Are we just being lazy? Or are we forgetting to teach our future generations how important they are?
Simple actions like saying please and thank you, opening a door for the person behind you, apologising when you accidentally bump into someone, they’re all incredibly easy yet it seems to some they are moreover a chore.
Manners are possibly the most simple way to show kindness to others, it doesn’t take time or effort to be polite. Save room for manners, and kindness, and help us encourage our future generations to be kind to one another, use their manners, be chivalrous and generous, the world will be a much kinder, nicer place to live in!
