Are having good manners considered old fashion?

Mind Your Manners {Etiquette Protocol}
Do you consider this quote to be true or a part of ancient history!?

                                     Mind Your Manners {Etiquette Protocol} (clipped to

You go to the store and get in line only to have someone break in front of you! You tell someone to have a nice day only to be given the stink eye! You give a person a helping hand only for them to brush it off like it was nothing! These are just  a few instances that I have experienced and some of you may can relate and tell of your own tells. But have you sometimes notice that  people do not have the manners and politeness like they use to. Even in the South, which is where I live, southern hospitality seem to be less frequent! So what is the problem? Can it be possible that people think good manners are old fashion?

I know for some younger children that I have taught in the past, considered  other children with manners as being wimps or kiss up. This may explain why a lot of them replied "yeah" when I called their name instead of "yes,maam". Peer pressure and image may cause kids to be rude but what is the problem with adults!? Some adults may think you are a goody goody if you say thank you but should you let what they say get to you!? You do not have to let the opinions of other keep you from doing what is right.

I believe that having manners is not out of date but shows that a person is modest and has  a good character instead of being a fuddy duddy! Those who have good manners may seem like they do not get far in life, but in reality being polite can get you more attention than a show off!  A rude person may get attention for a while but soon people will grow tired of him or her. People do sometimes gravitate to does who treat them right.  So do not be jealous of a person who behaves that way because they will soon fall.

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
 James 4:10 KJV

 A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.

Proverbs 29:23

Having good manners allows people to see that you are not selfish or prideful but humble. It takes a humble person to say thank you or please. So those who are humble enough to say that  you appreciate someone, thank you and keeping being a rarity because you are not out of style!
