Manners

Hopefully your parents taught you the importance of proper manners :nod:
so how good are your manners? Are you a polite person? If so, how often? If not, why not?

In general I'm polite person, even when I'm totally having a very bad day and my own mood is horrible, I can still be nice to people. But if I don't like a person, I can and will be a happy "rude polite" to them. But most people I don't, don't like me either. So, it's even.

Cause right now, I want nothing more then to say some very choice words to the people I'm stuck living with right now, but I can't. So I just leave them completely alone, and they hate that. I can hear them talk about me from the upstairs, so I know what they think of me. But it's best to be polite and the better person, then let yourself fall to their level.

ya unless you piss me off
i'll probably be "nice" to you anyways but throw some dirty looks or snarky comments in the mix

being kind and polite is pretty uncommon where i live so i'll eventually get tired of it

Yes, in person I always say thank you, you're welcome and excuse me. Netiquette doesn't make sense.

I rebelled against being taught manners. I thought pleases and thank yous were for tools. I no longer think that, but I still have a hard time remembering to thank people.

Um.. my manners... I have been working on them for at least 6 months when I started using Da, well half way through it. I have gotten better but I do forget to say stuff. But I do believe my manners were worse before then. 
But, I say You're Welcome and Thank you a lot here on DA XD

I'm real quiet at school because of social anxiety and selective mutism but I still thank people my own way with a little nod and smile.

But any sign of hostility can make me really nervous and I just become twice as aggressive. All manners are thrown outta the place and I'm ready to fuck shit up (or forgive if all conditions are met).

I'm like a human landmine. Be polite and don't touch my personal space, you're fine. Step on me and you'll regret it.

the harsh up bringing that my father bestowed upon me made me very respectful to other parents. I think I had fairly good etiquette, you know, never asking for food, never complaining about anything, never being rude.

my dad did a good job of making me believe everything that authority told me and to always obey authority, his character is weak and spineless to this day.

Hum I thank people a lot IRL, also I'll often let someone sit in public transports if there are no seats, other than that I don't say much, I don't go, out of my way saying good morning to neighbors or things like that, and when people try to engage in small talk I don't act too friendly so that they stop annoying me.

I live in the southeastern US. I'm often surprised when visitors or transplants from other parts of the country comment on how polite we are, because I feel manners in the region have declined dreadfully even in my lifetime. 

I'm also surprised when people reject politeness. I occasionally have people get all huffy when I call them "sir" or "ma'am". But, being raised to be polite, I do not respond, "Have it your way, shitass!" as that would be rude.

Calling a woman "ma'am" instead of "miss" could be seen as an insult in a way I suppose - especially if that woman still fancies herself as being young or that woman is feeling that she's getting old and now you're confirming it for her.

I even remember when someone referred to my grandmother as a "senior citizen". That did not go over well despite the fact that she is well into being one. lol

Depends on the situation.

Many situations do require politeness and patience - which I was taught.

Other situations require a car battery hooked up to some guy's nut sack - which I may also have been taught. :paranoid:
