Because, It's Just Good Manners

It is a fact; we are a society that judges based on

performance and appearance. We judge people,

and are judged by others. Knowing this, we still

do not look at ourselves through the eyes of

others or note how our performance is seen by


We are quick to judge and therefore, quick to be

judged. Sometimes we find ourselves in new

circumstances or situations that are

uncomfortable and we do not know how to act

so, we “open mouth and insert foot”. You have

all heard that saying, as well as others, such as

“Do unto others, as you would have done to


This book is not about lecturing – though I may

do that a little.

Sometimes we need to sit back and remember

“it’s just about good manners and common


Every day we face situations in which we should

be showing, just by reflex and habit, common

courtesy. We are so conditioned today, that we

no longer even expect or anticipate being

treated with good manners.

....and the book continues


10. Public Behavior
Is it ever proper to discipline someone in
public? No. Whether it is a child or another
adult, you can always take the individual aside
or outside or to another location. It is
embarrassing and humiliating for everyone –
the on-lookers and the people involved.
Is yelling at children across a store a good
thing? Certainly not and is actually teaching
the child it is acceptable behavior.
Is it acceptable behavior to allow a child to
scream and run around unsupervised in a
restaurant or store? Certainly not! It represents
a disruption and interruption to everyone and a
hazard to others as well as a liability for the
place of business.
If the child is not ready to conduct himself with
reasonable good manners, then the child should
not be in public. If the child is too tired to
behave, then take the child home. If the child is
spoilt and wants to have a hissy fit or is
accustomed to throwing tantrums to get their
way, then take the child home.
Never touch a person, their property, or their
children without permission.
Because, It’s Just Good Manners
Never discuss money with people.
Do not talk on your cellular phone while in
Watch your language so that you do not talk
offensively while in public.
Do not slur people by name, religion, and the
way they appear or by ethics.
You should never cut in line or push people out
of your way.
Never stare at people or listen into their private
When you need to move ahead or through
people, always say “excuse me”.
