N0oooooo! I for one, refused to let other people condition me.
We should have good manners no matter HOW others treat us. Good manners are not a coat that you put on or take off at our convenience. They should be deeply ingrained in us, so we response automatically in a kind manner.
If we treat others badly because they treat us that way...we're no better than they are. If we have children or grandchildren...what are they learning?
We should do what's right because it's right...accept the fact, we won't always be appreciated for it...BUT that's not why we do what's right anyway, is it?
