“The technology that keeps us constantly connected is changing the way we think about etiquette”…”

…instant reply expectations, constant interruptions, less face to face eye contact, all part of the mix, they say…

If you were born after 1980, many former social graces are long but forgotten or are of the “olden days”…

And so it goes…

Politeness is to human nature what warmth is to wax. ~Arthur Schopenhauer

Good manners: The noise you don’t make when you’re eating soup. ~Bennett Cerf

People count up the faults of those who keep them waiting. ~French Proverb

Many who would not take the last cookie would take the last lifeboat. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic’s Notebook, 1960

Good manners can replace morals. It may be years before anyone knows if what you are doing is right. But if what you are doing is nice, it will be immediately evident. ~P.J. O’Rourke

Terrific Tuesday with all manner of things!
