A Pocket Manual Of Good Manners
Even if you’ve been out of school for years you too can easily learn good manners in order to reach your goals. Without the right tools and information, it could take you years and cost you a small fortune to discover the secrets of good manners; however. Instead of spending a fortune on so-called experts or knocking yourself out with the old trial and error method, there is an easier way to achieve your goals.
Good manners are the pneumatic tyres on the motor-car of life. Without them, certainly the car can progress, but it will be far less pleasant for the inmates. Good manners count far more than people realise. Often and often they make the difference between success and failure. A rough diamond may be of equal colour to the polished stone, but it is not so attractive to the observer, and may, therefore, pass unnoticed. There is a form of snobbism quite as virulent and unpleasant as the type which runs after titles and frequents “smart” houses—the snobbism which affects to consider all the refinements and generally accepted customs of modern society as ridiculous and to be despised. Certainly it is not a crime to eat peas with one’s knife, but it is neither a pretty nor a safe habit.
We like to think we live in a civilized society and yet where’s the evidence? Foul language is heard at the grocer’s, table guests are ignored during lengthy cell calls, and does anyone even know what to do with an RSVP these days? It’s good that A Pocket Manual Of Good Manners is available to fill in the blanks. And there are many.
