There are certain behavioral traits that can instantly tell you everything about a person without even sharing two words with them.

The way they hold themselves, the frequency with which they smile, and how they interact with others could reveal everything you may need to know about them, particularly their manners

Outrageous as it may seem, even the most minute detail could be all it takes to expose an individual's manners or lack thereof.

Indeed, while some people might not realize that they are behaving in a rude or inappropriate manner, others might be more aware of it, but make no effort to improve their behavior.

No matter how much side-eye is being unleashed upon them.

Redditor Fonzie1225 was curious to hear the dead giveaways of people having a complete lack of manners, leading them to ask:
"What is one thing that instantly makes you think 'this person has no manners'?"

Control Your Children!

'People who let their kids run around in a movie theater, kick the back of your seat repeatedly, and hang on you."-- curious_cat123456

"Parents who let their children run rampant anywhere."

"I've seen parents watch as their kid pops their fingers through every package of meat at the grocery store and do nothing."

"Parents who let their kids kick a strangers shoe or other belongings."

"Letting the kids spit on windows and rub it with their hands."

"Letting them run around the store, playing with anything and everything and leaving a mess for others to clean and the parents literally just ignore it!"

"I never understood that."

"They really are your obligation, not the store associate who's unlucky enough to be working the shift you happen to stroll in during."

"Be a parent!"

"Chainsmokes/vapes in peoples cars, flicks ash 'out the window' but everyone knows that literally will just kick it back into the jeep. tries to constantly 'teach' people things, and will talk your ear off and basically just dominate the conversation."

"No listening or allowing for a different perspective."

"Motherf*cker literally introduced himself to me as 'the smartest man in any room' he plays music and sings in the shower at 4, 5, 6 in the morning and will take 45+ minute showers , 20 minutes to sit on the toilet and 25 to have his concert."

"The last straw for me was when I came home on leave and saw his flesh light sitting out in the common area table."

"We’ve stopped inviting him to places."

"He sits in his room alone playing xbox all day because i’m not responsible for teaching a 21-year-old child basic manners."

It truly takes no effort to be polite and courteous to others.

Perhaps the fact that none of these people even seem to try to be a better person might be the most telling characteristic of all...

"The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

An aged old proverb reflecting on when people perform what they think are well-meaning, helpful acts, but in reality, only worsen a bad situation.

A day seldom goes by when people won't notice an example of this, either on the news, in the book they're reading, or simply walking down the street.

This could be anything from someone making promises to help out, but never delivering on them, to saving money for a less expensive cleaner, which turns out to radiate toxic fumes, resulting in the building being closed for an indefinite length of time.

Ideas which might seem good in theory, but are impractical, illogical, or even harmful, in practice.

Unless you grew up with the most doting parents on the planet, there's probably a toy or two that you really wanted as a kid, but never received.

Whether it was too expensive for your parents to afford, or something like a noisy toy that was going to be way too annoying for your parents, there are probably some toys that you really missed out on as a child.

When it comes to fast food places, no two places are the same. Wendy's spicy chicken nuggets are far superior to those from McDonald's, while no one does milkshakes quite like Dairy Queen.

I have always preferred burgers from In-N-Out, but my brother will always go for Five Guys.

There will always be debates when it comes to which establishment does fast food the best.

The biggest debate surrounds the ultimate side dish: french fries.

No one can ever seem to agree on which fast food chain has the best french fries, but that doesn't stop the debate. Redditors are engaged in that very debate as we speak!

Some people will just believe anything.

And if you call a statement a fact long enough, many people take it as gospel.

Some facts are absolute truths, others can be malleable.

Science changes.

History evolves.

Lies are exposed.

And research is an actual art form.
