I agree, simple courtesy seems to be a dying art.

All you can do is maintain your standards, and hope it rubs off on those with few manners.

I think one of the problems now is that the younger generation (not everyone but I would say the majority) of 18-21 year olds now, are very entitled... they think the world owes them something and they think they deserve everything... back in the day, people worked for what they needed, people didn’t expect anything... i find personally at my work, the younger members of staff are VERY rude to authority, they don’t like being told what to do and they have no respect for any manager we have..

Totally agree.. No offence to anyone that drives a MASSIVE car. But where i live they tend to be the rudest. Looking down at me in my little Vauxhal Agila.

Thinking they can just pull out infront of me, or hey no need to say thank u love! I just gave you way when there was a car parked on YOUR side of the road. Rant over. Sorry.

Man: I'll open the door for you.

Woman: You think I can't open a door? You misogynist!

This isn't the standard but happens sometimes.

Can you honestly say this has happened to you? For decades I have heard that story and tbh I think it is just that.....a story. Even if it has happened once or twice to one or two men, it is no worse than the many men for whom I have held a door and they have sailed through without a smile or thank you. As have many women. No one holds the monopoly for holding door rudeness lol.

I find it is the new generation who find it is not required to say a simple Thank you or Please....I will bring my children up with....It does not cost a thing to use your manners !. I love that they school they all attend use the same ethos !!!

ShellyWilliams As you have probably noticed I am getting on a bit. When I joined the WRNS it was a very strict and disciplined environment as was the job prior. I then had an office career for 26 years which, at start, was almost Dickensian. Too much talk frowned upon, one tea break am and pm, no lunch break until morning work done and so forth. My, how things have changed. We have gone totally the other way and now anything goes. People sit chatting at desks, amble off for tea and coffee, cigarettes etc whenever they like, personal phone calls, personal online stuff, it is a wonder anything gets done and this is reflected in the number of errors made on a daily basis. (Especially in my job)

People used to be polite and conscientious but your superiors could give instructions without fear of being accused of bullying, taken to acas or HR.

Don't get me wrong, employees need protection but now it seems the workplace is a social gathering and too many distractions cause miscommunication and errors which managers are too wary of correcting. Today at work, people not doing their job properly meant a lot of taxpayers money was wasted and children were disappointed.

We have all this marvellous technology but communication in the work place has never been so lax. No one cares any more.

Sorry I have gone off subject but I agree: Manners maketh the man, cost nothing, yield respect and make for a happier world.

ShellyWilliams I often wish I could debate/chat with some folk on here. I love conversation and find it very hard to write short comments. Probably because I live alone and work with kids so don't get enough lol.

Yeah, not personally but in U.S. or Canada? That's quite common. Lynibis

It's almost unreal this is actually real. This guy covered the story and feel he's on point.

Europeans are some of the luckiest people in the world for being born in 1st world countries but even then they do stupid nonsense like this. Not all of them obviously, I'm European too and I can't stand this drama culture.

Generally I find the people I socialise mainly with are at work. I work for a large corporate company so everyone tends to be very well mannered in this environment. I sometimes find some customer service people to be rude and in the wrong job and I will certainly pick them up on it. I will definitely be teaching my children the importance of manners - they don’t cost a thing!
