Ms. Manners…breaks out on playing MUSIC in PUBLIC

I’ve got one thing to say about this epidemic. Okay, maybe two.

(1) DO NOT PLAY YOUR MUSIC IN PUBLIC ENCLOSED AREAS. EVER. Now you’re probably wondering about the caps, italics, bold and underline, but that’s because I’m insanely serious about it. It is one of the most annoying and inconsiderate thing in the world, to come on a train or a bus or in an enclosed public area, and to have someone blasting their music from their blackberry speakers. I know for SURE those things came with headphones. It’s a personal media player for a reason. Plug the buds in your ear and enjoy.

Ms. Manners on…Public Transportation: 

I’m just going to get straight to the point–

 (1) When entering a train, please MOVE INTO the car and fan out. I never understood why people stood by the door, knowing fully well that a potential stampede was in front/behind them. Furthermore, if you’re going to play “door man” for the train passengers, you can at least MOVE TO THE SIDE to let people move into the train. It is the most annoying thing in the world to not get on a train and then see the middle of the car empty as it passes by.

 (2) Last time I checked, bags didn’t pay the $2.25 for a ride. You did. Either you sit down and put your belongings on top of you, or let someone who actually wants to utilize the space have it. Your belongings aren’t that special. If they were, you shouldn’t be on the train with them. Continue reading

Ms. Manners Breakout on Personal Space

Now there are a lot of people out there that don’t understand the meaning of personal space…at school, at home, and most certainly at work, but please take heed to the words that are to follow:

 Let’s breakdown the meaning of Personal Space: Personal (as in one person, one being) Space (distance, zone, area) is the space in which one person is exhibiting. Some may call it their comfort zone and it can be physical or mental, but in any event it exists. The #1 rule all people on EARTH should adhere to is that of never entering another’s personal space. Sometimes people don’t have enough common sense to understand this, but this will help to better clarify: Continue reading

Ms. Manners is happening!

Hey guys…definitely haven’t forgot about this Ms. Manners blogging project. As it stands I figure I am going to be doing full length Ms. Manners articles focusing on one topic/subject with occasional “breakouts” which will follow something that doesn’t quite need a full article, or a more in-depth take on a specific rule/regulation.
