Growing up I was always complimented on my manners. My father was in the Navy so he instilled the basic traits of a chivalrous gentleman in me and my brothers at an early age. It was always yes sir no sir, yes ma'am no ma'am regardless of the persons age. I quickly noticed the respect I earned amongst adults by being a kind, well mannered person and it stuck with me. I hold the door open for people, open the door for any lady that is getting in a car, offer my coat or umbrella to someone in need, always say please and thank you and I try my hardest to be a gentleman at all costs.
