Good Manners by Sadiya Good Manners by Sadiya
One of the most attractive characteristics someone can have is good, polite manners. I feel like this is a rarity these days. My mom taught me to say please and thank you, to hold doors open for people, to smile at strangers.. I feel like the world is so self-absorbed nowadays and these simple gestures are getting lost. I don't know if anyone else feels this way but I made a quick stamp as a tribute to my feelings on the subject.

And here's my journal of "Thank you" and "You're welcome" in various languages. </div>








*Thanks to ~shawkash for his input on the colours etc. :cake:

Once, I opened the door for five people and only one of them said thank you.

This is so rare these days.

I wish people these days would take their time to be polite.

I have be told off a few timefor holding the door open for woman because I was taught the same thing you say in your description. The female that I held the door open for told me "What you *@# do not think I can open a door on my own?" So I shut the door and went on in.
But what you say is true.

A shame, too. Something so simple that most people ignore online. :(
That's a wonderful journal, as well.

Very true... Also, people are lazier in general these days, and politeness usually requires some effort :) It's very easy to be rude after all... O_o

I feel the same way. I feel not many people care to be polite and show kindness to strangers (or even family) anymore. It makes me sad for future generations. :no:
thanks for sharing your stamp with the community.

I love this stamp.

I was reared with a pretty strong focus on manners and politeness. I'm far from perfect, but I seem to "stand out" enough that people call me way too uptight or assume I had a very strict upbringing. It's as though good manners are extreme, not expected, and it shouldn't be that way.

It's comforting to see people with like mentalities. :3

Oh, what a lovely stamp! I completely agree with what you're saying: manners are such a rarity today. I reckon if they were a little more ubiquitous, the world would be so much nicer. Plus, I think if you're nice to strangers, karma will be nice to you. :aww: Using this on my page, thank you!

I agree with this! At school, when were headed into a classroom, it is very rare that someone will hold the door open for me, usually the boys just push me out the way. I must say manners are a great likeness for me. :clap:

Great stamp, I hate it when you smile and people just stare at you or something, or give you bad looks. >> Or when people just have no respect for others.

Lovely stamp! I love when people say "thank you" and "you're welcome".
I give someone a compliment, and they say "yeah". I hate that :noes:

I gave 3 people compliments, and they drew me pictures :D

I agree as well. :nod:

I get a lot of "It's good to know that good people still exist" after I helped someone. It gives a good feeling to be nice and polite to people. It's a pity that many people have forgotten their good manners. :(
Great stamp, by the way! :wave:

I would really love to use a stamp like this one. :) Being polite is one habit that never needs to be kicked. It saddens me to think that common courtesy is not so common these days.. but this is a very nice stamp, and I'm still enjoying the fact that someone took the time to make it. :)
