Is chivalry dead? I have a bone to pick with people of the year 2011, I find that there are no manners anymore. If you actually think about it, I have observed that people rarely care about others anymore?
Aren’t we encouraging our children to be respectful people of our society? I know that when I go anywhere it’s very rare that you get a thank you when you open the door for someone anymore. It’s very rare that you get a wave if you stop for someone to cross the street. It’s very rare that you get someone to ask if you need help when your arms are full, or someone to go out of their way to hold the door open when a senior needs help. Why is this so rare? Weren’t we all brought up with manners and character?
I remember being scolded if I didn’t treat someone with respect. I know as a young person we were instilled to treat adults with respect. Well there isn’t any respect anymore. People are too busy to give a crap about others. Do you think that this is what is wrong with our every so growing population, that we are just too busy? I am not even putting young people in this category, older people are of equal blame.
It shocks me that I am trying to teach my daughter such manageable, and expected standards of life, and yet people walk around belching and swearing like it is a new way to breath. It’s hard to make excuses for such a disgusting habitat that we are living in.
What’s your take? Do you believe that we are too busy? Do you believe that we are missing something at home? All I know, is that next time you go out, be conscious of who is or isn’t saying please and thank you. Are you part of the problem?
