I'll always remember my father removing his cap in a public restaurant, rising whenever a 'female' entered the room and standing behind his chair until the 'females' were sitted at the dining table. He was a man of impecable manners. To this day...I find that a man with manners is far more desirable than a man without. When I see a person displaying good manners, it shows me that the individual is 'present in the moment'. IMO.
