This Article On Manners Was Written By Lori Bennett
This sounds like a topic you would have with a kindergarten class. Unfortunately, many grown-ups don’t understand that using good manners, being polite and showing respect will help improve your everyday life. I’m still part of a full time workforce and would like to share with you a few not so good experiences where manners really do matter.
I don’t want to sound too bitter but some of the things that people do or don’t do amaze me. For example, we have a beautiful lunch room at my office. Every Monday morning it’s sparkling clean. By the time lunch time is over, the chairs are not pushed in, tables are dirty and dishes are left in the sink. Who do you think will clean up after you, your mother!? Come on people, we are not 5 years old. Clean up after yourself. I often wonder what their kitchens look like at home.
Manners At The Workplace
I really don’t want to go here but I must. THE RESTROOM. I have encountered used toilet paper rolled up and on the floor, toilets not flushed and feces on the toilet seat. Really? come on ladies, where is your class. How gross is that! To top it off, I will be in the restroom and watch someone leave the stall and walk right out the door without washing their hands. And the ladies wonder why I never eat at our pot lucks, no thank you. Remember, put a seat cover down, flush and was your hands.
Gossip, what a great way for people to lose trust in you. Have integrity people! Life would be so much better if people would mind their own business, do their job and respect other people’s lives. Remember folks, we are a team. Have you ever heard, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”
Just remember, present yourself with class, show good manners and treat people they way you would like to be treated. This world would be a much better place if we all showed respect to one another. Hold a door open for someone, say thank you and smile, it may be contagious. Oh yeah, one more thing, remember to clean up after yourself, MUAH!!!!!!
