I’m sure you were used to hearing this as a child, but for all the adults that seem to forget it, here’s the DAILY NAG:  Mind Your Manners!

This means you say “please” and “thank you.”  When you come to a door, hold it open for others.  And if someone opens the door for you, say “thank you.”

Why is this important?  Not only does it maintain (or rehabilitate, if you’ve been rude) your image as a caring person, it’ll also surprise some folks who thought good manners had been buried years ago.

Of course, this means you can’t make any rude gestures in traffic, no matter how stupid the numbskull is that cuts you off.  And it means you’ve got to let the lady with two items go ahead of you in the line at the Piggly-Wiggly.

Whats more, being nice to people will make YOU feel better.

Trust me.  Would I lie to you?  Now don’t answer with food in your mouth…
