Mind Your Manners?

I was teaching “Social Manners” to the niece yesterday.


“We say SORRY when we hurt someone”

“We say THANK-YOU when someone helps us”


I am sure each one of us learnt the above during childhood as part of syllabus. But then as we grew we also learnt things like ego, being self-centered, why-should-I attitude et el. It kinda worked like the re-taping stuff. & even when it is used sometimes it is either a forced one, or done circumstantially, many times to get out of a mistake; very rarely meant what it has to convey.  


Today it is all about “Social Networking” and the manners, Oh well it just exists in the books and thank goodness with the kids at least.
