Rude people grind my gears ! For real! I know manners start at home and from our up bringing but I believe as we grow into adults some manners should be common sense. Yet people keep proving me wrong.

Let’s start here. Manners start at home. Growing up we see the way our parents, sisters, brothers, grandparents, etc talk to one another and that’s where we get our manners from. Hopefully they are the right ones.

  • Privacy is huge! No matter how small your home is or how many people live there everyone should have their own corner/spot where they can feel at peace.
  • Keep your family’s business at home! Anyone that does not live with you in your home is considered an outsider. Finances, Plans, & Problems are no one’s business but yours and your wife/husband’s.
  • If a door is closed always knock before entering, wait for the Ok to come in.
  • Know when to clean up after yourself! Whether you are home, at your grandmas, or your friends.
  • Telephone conversations are not for the world to hear. When you are in public keep your voice low and DO NOT have a conversation on speaker.
  • If someone is on the phone you need to say excuse me before speaking to them ONLY if it is important. If not, then wait until they hang up.
  • Put your phone away when someone is speaking to you.
  • Don’t chew with your mouth opened!
  • Don’t be loud in restaurants. Don’t laugh loudly! Have class!
  • Don’t invite yourself to someone’s home. Don’t invite others to someone’s home. Wait to be invited.
  • Respect people’s schedules and free time.
  • Don’t overstay your welcome.
  • When invited somewhere always ask to help!
  • Don’t stop in the middle of the street to have a full blown conversation with someone. Don’t block anyone’s way.
  • Have respect for people that you come in contact with. Respect different lifestyles.
