What "lost art" social customs do you miss the most?


Friends and I were discussing the "lost arts" social customs we miss the most - those that were everyday routine when we were kids but which are dying out today. Mentioned were several customs, such as taking time to visit friends and family in person (as opposed to Facebook'in), men opening doors for women, families sitting down to a table for dinner and folks taking the time to know their neighbors by names. So I'd like to ask: what lost art social customs do you miss the most?

    I dropped the expectation of the thanks, or when it happens too much, I just stopped holding the doors. Maybe they didn't want me to hold it for them. If the world has dropped the habit of "thanks" I simply go with the flow. Then we all can be happy.
