Why good manners is a deal breaker

I am a stickler for good manners. Growing up in the country, you won't find too many men or women that don't have good basic manners. 

Men open the door for women, walk on the outside when walking a woman down the street, sit down at the table and eat only when the host and every other person has been seated, and mostly, without a pocket full of cash, they are the first to invite someone over for dinner or to try their fresh tomatoes that they planted early on in the season. It's these good country manners and hospitality that reminds us that it isn't too hard to be kind and display good manners.

There really is a lot to be learnt from country folk.
