I read this article on ABC News about a study showing people are getting ruder and ruder. I say that was a no-brainer!!
What do you all think?
I was particularly upset by this comment:
As a single parent I say that's bull !!!! I hate when people categorize single parents like that. It doesn't take ANY time to teach your child good manners!! All you have to do is model them. I've been a single parent since I was 19 and my daughter is one of the most polite children you'll meet. She says please, and thank you, and knows to put her napkin in her lap at a resturant!!!! Of course I'm biased, but she really is polite, people comment on it all the time.In some cases, the harried single parent has replaced the traditional nuclear family and there's little time to teach the basics of polite living, let alone how to hold a knife and fork, according to Post.
Grrrrr.... stuff like this makes me
