Women would rather stand than take a seat occupied by a man.
And who now would accept a strange gentleman’s handkerchief without first making sure she had her anti-bacterial gel to hand?
Good manners are more than opening doors and writing thank you notes.
While opening doors for others and writing notes is nice, true courtesy goes deeper.
We can't police ourselves all the time, but before you say or do something, ask yourself how you would feel if others said or did that to you.
The more you practice this rule, the more natural and easier it becomes.
Manners are something used every day to make a good impression on others and to feel good about oneself.
No matter where you are - at home, work, or with friends - practicing good manners is important.
You are also setting standards for others' behavior and encouraging them to treat you with similar respect.
Every culture and individual may have different rules or feelings about what is polite or is not polite.
