    Are good manners becoming a thing of the past?

    Most definitely. I went to a public library to use a computer program that I don't have on my computer. A man began sat down at the computer next to me and took less than four minutes to being talking and irritating me nonstop. First he started talking about how quickly I typed and then moved into more personal questions and even insulted me a couple of times before I had to get up and move just to finish what I'd gone to do. He acted as if my purpose in life was to talk to him! This was a man at least a decade my senior as well, so it's not just young people who can be very rude. As I got up and left without a word he looked at me as if I bothered then offended him!

      I wish I could say that good manners are not becoming a thing of the past and shared an unfortunate but recent example here. I can still hope that I am wrong or in the minority of those who see an uptick in needless inconsiderate or rude behavior.

    I agree that good manners are becoming a thing of the past. My pet peeve is when I say "Good-morning" to someone and they just look through me like I'm invisible. Worse yet, when I enter an elevator and say "Hello" or "Good-morning." Most of the time no one answers! So now I wait for them to say it before I say anything. Also, "please" or "thanks" are almost obsolete. I have held doors open for people coming after me and they just walk past without a word. It's awful!

    Yes. As we become a more arrogant society, manners are pushed aside. Pride, high self esteem building, getting mine, Im number one, and so on are focusing on self....good manners require humility, thinking of others first. cant do that if you only want to do what benefits you. We usually complain that men need good manners but women should open doors for seniors, give up a seat for the elderly and a big one---dont take handicap parking if you can walk--save it for a senior or someone unable to walk.
