Brits want manners to be taught in school.
A survey by supermarket Waitrose found that good manners are becoming a thing of the past with 72 per cent of those polled saying people have become more rude over the last decade.
It used to be the teaching of the three Rs that was considered the foundation of a good school education, but the poll found that today most people would prefer the four Rs - reading, writing, arithmetic and respect, the Telegraph reported.
The poll was conducted to mark the launch of the book How Rude! Modern Manners Defined, which will be published on Tuesday. ( ANI )
