Manners don't seem to be in abundance with the younger kids around here. My own 19 yr old daughter holds doors for strangers, and is polite. Yet . . . when her 20 yr old boyfriend comes to get her, or brings her home, he never gets out of his car! I have spoken to both of them about it. nada. zip. she says "I don't need a man to open doors for me or walk me to the door". but she does that for people. I think she is being defensive because he is too lazy to get out of the car. grrr. It is so frustrating. Good for you and Izzy!
