It's a question of manners...

DreamWolf DreamWolf
Well, it may sound funny, but I wonder how folks are out there...

For me it is never hard to stay most polite and pleasant, and I never get so upset that I would ever be rude to anyone, unless it was intentionally...

How are you when it comes to manners and your mood?

It depends on how the other person's behaving, if he/she is also nice to me, I can be an angel; if that person's a jerk, then I can be a bitch, don't mess with me!

I'm usually polite, its rare for me to be rude, unless the other person is insulting me or something.

Like the other posters, I do my BEST to be polite but, it also depends on how the other person is behaving. My husband likes to joke and say that I have a "phone voice" when I'm talking to people I don't know on the phone.

Usually polite..until it comes to my family. Then I can easily get frustrated and yelling starts.

I try really hard to be polite even when I am grumpy, but sometimes it slips.

It is really easy for me to be super sweet and polite almost all the time, BUT if anyone messes with or harms my kids or family I can be a total she-bitch, lol!!

I am good with being polite to strangers, it is part of my job as well. If a person I know is getting on my nerves I tend to lose my temper quickly though.

Unless I'm in a really foul mood that day (or someone is actually stupid enough to piss me off, which is rather difficult to do anyway) I tend to be very polite.
I'll be honest, I can have a bit of a vindictive bitch side if the situation calls for it. It doesn't see daylight much though. ^_^

I am an extremely polite person 99% of the time. It takes so much to make me really angry--but when I get like hell!! I am a bottler; I bottle things up inside and then totally explode like a volcano after i have been extremely pushed.

I have an easy time being nice for the most part, but when i'm angry it becomes much harder, though I try to control my temper.

I'm very mild-mannered. It just makes life better when you're not a jerk to other people.

Because of my upbringing I find that I am almost unhealthily polite and passive. If someone is rude to me I find myself yielding to them almost every time. When they are gone, though, I tend to have something of a breakdown and tell myself "you should have chewed them out, that was not fair!"

It takes quite a toll on me. I'm trying to grow out of it.

When it comes to dealing with strangers, I am always extremely polite. Retail and service industry employees get extra nice treatment from me. With friends and family, I'm more relaxed and less sugary and if I'm in a bad mood they're more likely to see my mean/grumpy side. The closer someone is to me, the closer they are to having a bad day taken out on them, unfortunately. I always apologize once I've recovered, though.

Ehhh...depends. If it's a professional conversation, I'm polite. If it's someone I know, usually not as much. I'm not naturally a polite person.

I'm generally as polite as possible. There are very few people who can push my buttons enough to make me lose my cool.
Well, I hate drama so I find it easier to be polite than deal with drama.

It all depends.

My manners are quite different from everyone elses around here. To me, manners also mean patience and personal space and very few people here actually know what patience and personal space is.

How I respond is usually depends on how I feel. Usually I just ignore them and walk away returning later to try to do what I need to do, and others?

Well, I am human.

99% of the time I just ignore people and like my mama always said, they will go away.

But... the other 1% of the time...

If they get too close and I've asked them to respect the space- well that doesn't happen. I actually wait and wait and wait and wait for the space I need to be emptied. It has gotten to the point where the cleaning women put bets to see how long I have to wait for the lift each morning. It is hilarious as all get out when I sit here and think about it, but while I stand there waiting and waiting, I begin to wonder where does patience end and stubbornness begin?

If I am at the store buying groceries, and people walk over and reach into my cart pawing through my groceries, I will reach into their purses or wallets and try to aim for their wallets.

When people stare at me as I walk through the city, I usually ignore them, but there are days when it just.... gets to me and I am human. I take out my camera and start taking pictures of them. But I have to admit, those days when cyclists ride into a wall or a person or a car hits another car because they were watching me... I do get a little hop skip and a jump on the insides laughing at them.

There are so many others... I try to have a sense of humour about it... but when you call in asking for the balance on your telephone and they start to lecture you about how many international messages you sent last month... I just get a little irate that my personal life is any of their business.
I am usually mild mannered and polite but for some reason when it comes to talking to companies over the phone I tend to lose my cool.

I'm generally very mild mannered and polite, especially with people I don't know very well. I won't hesitate to take a stand for myself, though. And I can get rather loud if need be.

I try to be polite, but I slip up sometimes.

I am always polite unless you are in my face rude, then you're going to get it!
