Wearing A Hat At The Dinner Table Is Not Right – No Reason Needed
We 've been fighting all morning about the etiquette of wearing a hat at the dinner table and in other "formal" situations . I say it shows rudeness and a lack of respect. Sean doesn't totally disagree, he just wants to know WHY it's so important to have these old customs? I have a headache. I don't know the answer, honestly. I wish I was a historian. And maybe it is important to know where these things come from. But could you imagine a kid constantly asking why its important to:
. hold a door for a person (male or female)
. say please and thank you to people at a restaurant
. being quiet during the pledge of allegience
. not burp or fart in church
. take off your backwards Yankee hat a funeral
. not call a police officer a pig when he pulls you over.
But where would we be as a society if noone adhered to ANY of these customs? I don't care where they come from. It just makes for a more kind and gentle world. (I learned that from George W Bush) What's your take on this? Would love to know. Leave you comments below. I meant to say - PLEASE leave your comments. Thank you so much.
