Call me old-fashioned. Every day I am confronted by situations that make me scratch my head an wonder: Where did we go so wrong? Simple courtesy, etiquette and ethics seem to have taken a dramatic dive into the dust-bin of history.

While growing up, I was reminded of manners and etiquette on a near daily basis and I am thankful for such, as it taught me how to interact with people in an appropriate manner. A lot of parents today simply ignore such things and the results will inevitably be a society of people who need their a$$es kicked.

But, that got me to thinking.........

If it all ends tomorrow and society must rebuild, what are the top three rules of courtesy, ethics and etiquette that you personally think must be drilled into people? I think mine would be:

1.) Respect of elders.
2.) Nothing in life is free.
3.) Help thy neighbors.

After things settle and the goblins are either wiped out or driven to the nether regions it will be the decent people who prevail and most of them will lean on old traditions and the dictates of their own conscience. Doesn't mean it will be perfect, but they won't deliberately crap on everybody they see as an ice-breaker.
