Is William Badly Brought Up?

I noticed during a recent Malaysian stopover that he allowed his new wife to precede him down the aircraft steps, presumably ladies first.

Is he so ill bred as not to know that a gentleman always alights from a conveyance first, so that he may assist the lady in descending?

The same applies to entering and leaving a lift first, in case of footpads lying in wait.

Civilised behaviour has truly gone to hell in a hand cart.

On the other hand, perhaps he has just decided that she is no longer a lady, worthy of such consideration!

(Oh, just in case, this is a fun post, please don't get all serious on me)

I travel on the bus everyday...and I like a seat at the back. Invariably there's always someone with their feet on the adjacent seat(s) ... it's always a young person doing this...I've never seen a person over 65 being so ill-mannered.

That's 'cos we can't get our feet up that high.

And that also goes for the younger generation with casts on their feet ;-). Hope you have a good recovery. So many little bones in the feet they can be a nightmare when injured.
