Your mother would ask these folks, “where are your manners?”

In just the past week, someone yelled at the President, Serena Williams tore into a line judge, and now Kanye West snubs first–time award winner Taylor Swift.

The recent outbursts have been a topic of both surprise and disappointment, and have many asking, what's happened to modern manners?

All offended parties have since accepted their respective apologies, but many here locally say they feel etiquette and manners are becoming a lost art.

    I agree where are modern day manners? What happen to common courtesy? All you have to do is drive to see that no one will move over so you can get on the road even if they are the only ones on the road. Walk into a local grocery store or shopping mall, did you get greeted? or did that clerk continue their conversation on the phone or to a fellow employee. I will have to say if you go to the Delta Safeway you will still see it there and it makes for a pleasant shopping experience and no I do not work there, I work in junction! I am so use to no one at wal-marts asking if you need assistance that the other night when everyone there started asking if I found what I wanted or was having a good experience I actually felt anoyed and that is a shame! It suprised me so much and you could tell the employees were not use to doing that so it came off a little aggressive. I suspect if they keep it up we will all get use to it again! please remember your manners, nothing bad will happen to U!
