Bad Manners or Just Plain Tacky?
Sometimes actions don’t just exemplify bad manners…instead they are just plain tacky! Below are the actions I would put in the “tacky” category. What do you think?
1. Disposing of gum in an improper manner – Nothing is more disgusting and improper to me than to see a woman, or a man for that matter, to spit gum out of a window! OMG! Seriously? You might as well be spitting a “loogey” or whatever. I have NO clue how to spell that word, so if you do, please enlighten me! 🙂
2. Blowing your nose at the dinner table – Please, please refain from blowing your nose at the table! Especially if the napkin happens to be cloth! Always excuse yourself and go to the bathroom.
3. Gossiping- I know, I know…gossiping is part of a girl’s life! That’s what we do! Gossip! It’s fun…No it isn’t! Especially if you happen to be the one who is being gossiped about! Always put yourself in the other person’s position and “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
4. Treating someone rudely – There is absolutely no reason to be rude to someone! It doesn’t matter how bad your day has been, or how hard you worked. Always be nice to people!
5. Burping or passing gas – MEN are especially bad when it comes to passing gas. I’m not sure who teaches them that it is funny to burp like an elephant or poot and wave it in our face, but I think it is EXTREMELY offensive.
6. Littering – Littering isn’t just bad for the environment or for the beauty of a city. It is also bad for animals. Unsuspecting animals are drawn to the side of the road where most trashed food is thrown and then they get run over and die.
7. PDA (Public Display of Affection) – Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a peck on the lips or the cheek or for holding hands in public, but I’m not okay with seeing two people make out in public. As they say…”Get a room!”
So what do you think? Do you think the above items are tacky, too? Please comment and let me know! Also, if I”ve left something out please add it!!
