Personal space is one of those things that’s understood and respected. While standing in line, give the person in front of you some space. Nobody wants to have someone so close to them that they can count your hair follicles.
In case you need a hint, I’ll “accidently” step back and crush your toes. Some people are truly clueless when it comes to manners. What else is new?
If you see me out and about, it’s highly likely that I have earbuds in my ears. Between my lack of filter and people’s lack of manners, plugging myself in keeps me from saying something to someone that will have them seeking solace in chocolate.
Even if I’m not plugged in, I still won’t hold a conversation with you. If that makes me antisocial, so be it. Get yourself some business and stay out of mine.
Manners will get you places that intelligence cannot.
Some men have either forgotten their manners or were never taught any. Addressing a woman you don’t know by anything other than “Miss”, “Ms.”, or “Ma’am” will get you verbally throat chopped.
Recently, someone left me a message on a dating site I’m subscribed to. Imagine my disgust when I read the following:
My initial reaction was to go off on this moron. Once I calmed down, I realized that this guy has used this line on other women before and at least one of them thought it was cute. Gross.
If bad behaviors are acceptable by the majority, why correct them? While my fault likes in the man who sent me that mess, I also blame women for not correcting these dudes when they step out of line. If you think being called “boo” by a stranger is acceptable, what else will you accept?
Apparently a whole lot.
