DISCUSSION: Are Manners Dead?

Earlier this week The Mercury reported that bus etiquette was suffering in Tasmania and commuters were refusing to give up their seats for the pregnant and elderly. When a driver asked someone to give up their seat for a pregnant woman, the response was, “she chose to be pregnant”. Apparently this isn’t an isolated incident and people are generally behaving less well mannered in our society.

Then there is the subject of mobile phones, which many store owners complain about. People talk too loud, or they are distracted when they should be concentrating on those around them.
