Etiquette defined : conventional requirements as to social behavior; proprieties of conduct as established in ANY CLASS OR COMMUNITY or for ANY OCCASION.
In other words, proper etiquette is a fancy way of saying good manners, which we are taught from the time we were small children and keep on learning proper etiquette socially as we age. A person does not have to come from a higher level in society, have a million dollar bank account to show proper etiquette, that has nothing to do with it. A person can have no class with or without money, it is something learned, not earned. However there those adults that make me wonder if they had parents to teach them proper manners as children.
Proper manners can be summed up in a few words that should be used, thank you, please, your welcome, and addressing ones elders with respect, no matter the age we are personally, an elder is an elder.
Proper etiquette is taking those words forming them into actions, with ones mannerisms, notes of appreciation and such.
However, if a person chooses to not display good manners and or proper etiquette, they won’t get to far in the social world on a one on one basis with people they come in contact with. I don’t care who it is, no one likes ignorance or to be treated with ignorance. When we do practice good manners and proper etiquette, others remember that and will be there when called upon for favors, or if bumped in to out in public, you will be acknowledged when you have treated contacts with the respect we all deserve.
