So the other day i was out and about with my 2 munchkins. As we were coming out of this place another family was coming in. Cause i grew up with manners i decided to hold the door open for them. It was 2 young boys maybe 8 and 10 years old and there mom and dad. As they walked in one by one, none of then had the common courtesy to say thank you. They all just looked at me while they walked in. So once they were all inside i turned to them and said "your welcome". Do manners just not exist any more?? Does any one else get bothered when something like that happens? And if you are someone who doesn't use manners or teach your children manners, why are you like that? How hard can it be to say thank you?
Wow! I didn't expect to see all the negative posts that you received on this lil sis. But it just goes to show you that everyone was brought up differently. And, to a couple of the comments posted on here, how the he** do you lower yourself to their level by saying your welcome!? That makes no sense! And to this comment: Do you think by being rude to someone, you teach them polite manners? YES I MOST CERTAINLY DO! If I could give people a swift kick in the butt to remind them that we are all the same. Not any of us are better than the other and when people pull stunts like that (in the back of my mind) it makes me think that all of us "DOOR HOLDERS", that don't receive at least a f***ing thank you, should just let that door shut as soon as we've walked thru it. It's simple people...Manners. It's not that hard to say thank you, please, your welcome, etc. Whew that felt good :)

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU!!! I would have said something too. I consider people like that classless! There is no excuse for not having manners & I hope they heard what you said. I treat everyone with courtesy, my DH holds doors as well. I have even taught my 4 year old courtesy. Rude behavior & lack of common courtesy seems to be spreading today. Maybe it's because everyone is too busy Text messaging to teach their kids manners today, it's pathetic.
