Etiquette For The Modern Girl & Guy

  1. 1. “She must not swing her arms as though they were dangling ropes; she must not switch herself this way and that; she must not shout; and she must not, while wearing her bridal veil, smoke a cigarette”
  2. 2. The Arizona Daily Star's headline of March 19, 2001, confirms it: "Stressed-out American society gives birth to rage of all kinds." Researchers and other experts find we're "an enraged society," they define "toxic" rage, and point out that "Irrational behavior by kids at school, by sports stars, by mom and dad, by people at work, has become the norm. Basically, we've created a breeding ground for violence."
  3. 3. An ABCNEWS/World News Tonight Poll confirms that most of us (85%) feel that a simple “thank you” and “please” would make the world a better place. And more than 8 out of 10 Americans “say the failure of parents to instruct their children in good behavior is a ‘major cause’ of bad manners” -- adults with kids are “as likely as those without to say that bad parenting is a major cause of bad manners."
  4. 4. Is there such a thing as childhood innocence? The Parents Television Council sees a lot more foul language and violence aimed at kids during the so-called family hour than most parents realize. Coarse language is up 78% since 1999 -- some 10 million kids on average watch TV from 8 - 9 PM.
  5. 5. Cuss is a four-letter word. These days, swearing in public is pervasive and foul language has become a habit for many -- with role models like sports stars, rock stars, celebrities, and cartoon characters leading the cultural decline. But some are swearing off swearing according to ABCNEWS.com.
  6. 6. “The children now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise.” Unknown
  7. 7. "When we talk about table manners, we're not necessarily talking about which fork to choose. We're talking … the manner in which you walk in, how you order your food, how you proceed through the meal, the conversation that you make at the table, whether it's appropriate or not … all those things tell people everything about you."
  8. 8. In a recent national poll by market research group Synovate, 68% of Americans claimed to observe poor cell phone etiquette at least once per day. Eighteen percent said they ran into poor e-mail etiquette. The study noted that the Americans showed the poorest etiquette when using the very devices they rely on the most (52% said they would “die” if their phones and e-mails were taken away). -- Forbes
