When I was growing up I was taught about manners, courtesey, etiquette and so on.I have always thought these things were pretty well accepted.
It seems I was wrong.People just aren't as mannerly as they used to be. My biggest peeve is wearing caps or hats inapropriatly. I see young people, grownups, elderly wearing hats indoors, in eating establishments, to the table at home, in school,and even at funerals.
When was the last time you saw someone remove his cap in the presence of a Lady? It should be automatic.
Just having manners is not going to save our nation, change social mores, or make us sissies.
