In this section we will look at all the manners that help us show respect, consideration, and honesty in situations outside the home. We will also consider the different ways we can show others how much we appreciate them. Everyone’s in a hurry; the streets are crowded; we live in each other’s pocket; we have deadlines to meet and airplanes to catch; and we pack into the stands to cheer on the home team. Outside the home, many of our encounters are with complete strangers. It’s easy to be rude (or use less than good manners) because we’re anonymous. Yet, to promote a civil society these are exactly the times that call for courteous behavior. By showing respect and consideration we can soothe over the bad times and make good times even better!
