It is for some the way that people treat others ,the way they want themselves to be treated. I agree with it. It is also about saying please, thank you and sorry whenever required.
Who taught you to be polite when you were a child?
Speaking Answer: I think no one actually taught me. I learnt it by seeing people around me. My mother is very polite and she talks to people very nicely, no matter what the other person is saying I don’t remember her losing her patience. She once told me, that don’t raise your voice in an argument, but rather improve your point. I have kept these things in mind and have benefited a lot because of my politeness.
Why is it important to be polite to people?
Speaking Answer: I think because of two simple reasons: first most people tend to react the way you talk to them. SO, if you want others to be nice to you, you have to start it by yourself. Secondly: because we all are living busy lives and it feels good when people talk nicely to each other.
Do you think people have become less or more polite since the time you were a child?
Speaking Answer: I believe, people have become more of open minded, less formal and more bold in making statements. So, they tend to just say as it is. But, this does not necessarily mean that they don’t respect their parents or elders. I think the problem is that people are not able to express what they feel in a better way.
