Is politeness really becoming rarer?
we complain a lot but if you think about your personal experience with adults people still tend to be polite to each other. Maybe they don't know every rule of etiquette, and lets be honest, most of us don't need them, or know them, but they are polite. Teenagers are, in fact, a problem, but haven't they always been? Are they still be rude when they grow up? Maybe we'll continue to have polite adults and complain about the "new" rudeness in the world...
People are is such a hurry they do not have the time or the effort to be polite. It is also due to someone's upbringing. Teach your child proper etiquette and manners. This is what all parents should attempt to do. Unfortunately, this never crosses their minds because they are rude and impolite as well.
yes, politeness is dangerously going to be extinct in years to come. I was wondering what did the teachers taught in school
Yes, it's gotten to the point that if you smile at someone and give them a warm greeting people assume you're either romantically interested in them or you have been taking "happy pills".
Others may think you're trying to con them or have something to sell. I've personally have held doors open for women as I walked into a building without them saying "thank you".
Maybe they thought the door opened automatically. I suspect if I said; "You're welcome!" They would reply with; "I never asked you to open the door for me!" Isn't that the beauty of kindness/politeness?
