Is it me or is each generation becoming ruder? I know I am not as etiquette-minded as my parents' generation. And I think my grandparents' generation was super nice: You couldn't knock on their door without being offered a cup of coffee or being invited in for a bit of conversation. Is it because people had more time then? What are you thoughts? Please also consider,
1) Does type affect manners? Is it an Fe thing?
2) Would you describe yourself as rude or lacking manners? Or both? Or well-mannered?
3) Do you think you need to improve in the manners department?
4) Are manners not needed as much anymore in this age of technology?
