Where have you experienced good and bad manners? Let us get the discussion started, please. Some of the best manners I encounter these days are at Chick-Fil-A where workers are taught to say “thank you” and “it’s my pleasure.” One thing I can’t understand is why, when you thank someone for something at a restaurant the waiter or waitress will likely say “no problem.” I didn’t say it was a problem. I am simply expressing gratitude for your service. Perhaps young people feel awkward saying "you're welcome." My parents were sticklers about manners in the work place as well as at home. They owned a popular Morganton store that sold books, wedding gifts, art supplies and greeting cards. They believed in respecting and keeping the customer satisfied. That meant good manners and good conversation. Thank you for listening. Please pass this along to others. No problem? Great!
