    I blame the parents...
    You can have my freedom as soon as I'm done with it!!!

  5. I know I was in a meeting the other day and a person there was saying the schools need to do this and the schools need to do that, NO! the schools need to teach the kids and the parents need to raise the kids. AND that is all I have to say about that. :Poep:
    Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant'
    is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist '.

    Very well said, the schools job is to teach kids, math, science, reading, arts, etc... not morals, manners, discipline, honor, etc.. thats the respondsibility of the parents!

    Every time they interrupt, just say "Watch out, it's an interrupting donkey!" You can explain that there's an interrupting ass that keeps butting in, and for their safety, you're letting them know to stay out of the way.

    IMO however there are exceptions to the etiquette against interruptions. People who over-explain their motives, or are long talkers (rambling on pointlessly) are themselves being impolite, and probably need to be interrupted or else nothing will get done.

    "I'm sorry I didn't call you back! I was going to call you on the way to the store, but then..." (cue up the 15-minute story)

    Unfortunately, manners have gone down the same road as common sense

    No self goverment. Lack of respect for people all products of no MAN in the family.

    ......wife and I going into a store....... another lady approached from the other direction...... I opened the door for the other lady, and she looks up at me and says, "what, do you think my arms are broke ?" My wife dropped her purse, and started forwards, and told the lady that "no, but I can fix that...." but I grabbed her shirt before anyone got thumped. Us old folks, especially me, don't deal with that crap very well........
