I'm happy to say that I feel most people do, but at the same time, having lived in 4 different countries I feel it also depends on which part of the world you live in.
In any case, if you are a parent, it is extremely important to instill this from a young age in your children.
No, we probably don't. Society is probably not as polite as the good old days. Thank you for asking this question.
No i would say we dont. I know how someone saying thank you to me makes me feel brilliant. I try and get my kids and my boyfriend to say please and thank you more. Manners are for free and cost nothing but yet they can go a long way.
No, I don't think we say please and thank you enough. I think we sometimes get caught up with hustle and bustle our lives and forget to be polite. I don't think it's personal. Good question.
Growing up, my grandmother always got us saying please and thank you all the time, so it left with me. I always say please and thank you all the time, even when its not needed.
You just remind me of the good old days...
My Mother used to tell us to say please and thanks more often, we were so young we didn't recognize the importance till few years ago when i met my wife she was so taken by my politeness that she said yes when i asked her hands in marriage.
i think alot of people today do, but at the same time, i still think alot more do not. people are so interested in things being so quick, and fast, that they feel they dont need to use manners.
At least in our family we do. We are a pretty polite bunch. The rest of the world, maybe not. Can't tell tou the number of times I have let someone in line ahead of me, or done something polite only to have the person act like it was owed to them with no comment one way or the other.
I often remind my girls to say "Please and thank" as often as I could remind them, however, I do not think most of us say it enough..but in my household it being said a lot.
I personally say those word with much redundancy in a day including 'sorry'.. . but it doesn't reduce the value and meaning that accompanies it.
Maybe for some they hadn't said enough while for others they did, it varies from person to person..
i think it's really won't hurt you if you do say "please" and "thanks you" often. it's a sign of respect which children must possess even nowadays.

What is the polite way to address a transgender person?I am serious about this question. It is not about morality or religion. I work in the public and I attempt to treat all persons with dignity. ALL. What is the most respectful form of address if you don't know the person's name?

So, I've always thought it was the polite thing to do to reply to commenters, and thank them for their time and input, and I've made an effort to do so consistently.However, I'm wondering if this is now being discouraged by HP, as there is no available comment box for replies on hubs that have been...
