It is often said that manners cost us nothing. Yet, it earns us respect whenever we observe them. The exhibition of manners by an individual usually depicts whether such person is from a well-trained home or not.

However, with the impact of civilization rapidly expanding towards every part of the world, people no longer- or it seems they have forgotten- how to observe simple manners. The neglect of this important virtue is, unfortunately, creating a negative impact in our society.

To therefore help people observe good manners, we have listed below, a list of things considered ill-mannered:


Don’t point – it’s rude

Don’t smoke or eat in the street – it looks ‘common’

Don’t talk with your mouth full – disgustingly, you may spit some of it out!

Don’t shout when speaking to people – Keep your voice down. 

Don’t interrupt – it’s selfish and ill-mannered. 

Don’t swear – it impresses nobody (it’s the language of low lives and those with a limited vocabulary). 

Don’t slam the door at the face of the person who opened/held the door open for you. 

Don’t talk behind other’s backs. 

Do not sneeze in public without covering your nose or turning away . 

Don’t be rude to elderly people, no matter the circumstance- it doesn’t portray good home training. 

Don’t ask rude questions that are none of your business.

Do not forget to say “please” when making a request and “thank you” when someone does something nice for you.
