Currently reading a few books about the subject. Wondering if anyone has read up on the matter. I defintly know a lot of people who try on a daily basis to be civil!
Books I'm reading:
-Etiquette for Dummies by Sue Fox
-Miss Manners' Guide To Excruciatingly Correct Behavior by Judith Martin
-Choosing Civility The Twenty-Five Rules of Conservative Conduct by P.M. Forni
-Why Manners Matter The Case for Civilized Behavior in a Barbarous World by Lucinda Holdforth.

    I am not upset about it. It seems to have worked out alright.

    I've never found one that explains the "why." I find etiquette and manners to be a fascinating subject because they're all things that a given culture will do, but few can tell you why they do it.

    I don't have any manners. I should try to look at those....NOT for strangers and everybody, but for people I'm actually friends with.

    Great. Good luck.

    Thank you for the book reference. I should be done with the books I have today, except for Miss Manners. Then its off to another library for me.

    Quite a few books. I remember Miss Manners.

    Miss Manners used to be Syndicated columnist .
    Emily Post was another who wrote on this subject .

    What a wonderful world it would be if more followed your example.

    No. When I was a kid (grade school), most of my friends' parents enrolled them in Miss Whitemore's School of Dance and Etiquette. My parents did not see the need to enroll me and that's why I sometimes feel socially awkward. Kidding. They learned to waltz, polka, fox trot, and also how to behave at a social gathering. The kids had to dress up for each class, including white gloves, and they learned how to graciously accept an invitation to dance as well as the proper way to hold you tea cup while standing. At the time I felt deprived but when I look back, it really was ridiculous. Last I heard, Miss Whitemore was driving around town in a one seat cart with a pony pulling her..... School of Etiquette
