Minding your P’s & Q’s

As Par­ents we must remem­ber we set the exam­ples for our kids.  Today at din­ner it was hard for me to keep my com­ments to myself.  Although we at  In N Out not exactly 5 star din­ing, how­ever, we must still mind our man­ners.  Table to the left of us, not only was the son tex­ting at the table the mother was also on the phone hav­ing a con­ver­sa­tion and laugh­ing while the hus­band and younger son were just sit­ting there.   As a older cou­ple was walk­ing into the restau­rant a young boy ran into the  women looked at her and said “what“  are you kid­ding me, the boy ran into her.  Did his mom say any­thing… not at all.   And lastly, a group of young adults left their trash at the table.

Lately there has been much dis­cus­sion about the lack of man­ners in today’s soci­ety.  Cus­tomer Ser­vice is a joke.  More and more kids have lit­tle to no respect.  Adults dont like to fol­low rules, but, slowly Social Graces is mak­ing its way back.  Don’t just take my word for it.  Here is an arti­cle I ran across from Trend Cen­tral MIND YOUR P’S & Q’S A return to old-fashioned man­ners is brew­ing

As we head into the sum­mer sea­son and spend more time with our fam­ily and friends enjoy­ing the beau­ti­ful weather we must remem­ber our man­ners do travel with us.   Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

When enter­ing a build­ing or ele­va­tor, if there is also a per­son exit­ing he or she leaves first then you enter.
At a self serve resta­raunt, you are incharge of clean­ing up your own mess.
No talk­ing, tex­ting, or list­ing to your mes­sages at the movies
No tex­ting or talk­ing on the phone while eat­ing.Â
Par­ents don’t expect your kids to have good man­ners if you dont

Have a won­der­ful Weekend
