At the risk of sounding like a total curmudgeon, not enough people have manners these days!

The simple acts of "please" and "thank you"? Lost! People press buttons on adjacent floors of elevators of 36 story buildings!

It just doesn't make any sense. In the words of Full House, whatever happened to dependability?
