Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Because the world today is just so busy and crowded, we should not expect people to be polite to one another.

The modern world is often harsh and rude to people due to the fast tempo of our lives. As a result, we forget about manners occasionally. However, I strongly believe that being polite is as important as being on time on the job or earning money. I feel this way for two reasons which I will explore in the following paragraphs. First of all, a piece of politeness may add some happiness to the everyday routine. Imagine the tough work of couriers and cashiers who serve rude clients gritting their teeth. If you just say simple "Hello, how are your day?" and "Thank you for your time and work" , it would show your valuation of their activity. It is also true for almost every service employee. My personal experience is a compelling example of this. I used to work as a tutor and once I had a really awful mood before a class with a student. Despite the fact that it was just an ordinary Mathematics lesson, he asked me about my day and offered me a cup of coffee with candies. It made me feel much better and gave me a huge impulse of motivation to do my job perfectly. Secondly, good manners show your level of education in some way. That is to say, if one has read many books and watched intellectual movies, they understand how to behave correctly. In its turn, correct behavior can drastically help to pass an interview because the recruiter values that as a part of the perfect employee. For instance, even Google company tests the candidates on their abilities to communicate with people in a polite way. It may sound funny, but some of these candidates fail the test and miss a job at Google due to their rude character. In conclusion, I strongly feel that our politeness is an important part which should be included in everyday life. The reasons for that are increasing our chances to find a good position in an appropriate company and also adding positive emotions to people around us. It may look unnecessary, but it is crucial.
