Etiquette, the complex network of rules that govern good behaviour and our social interactions is always evolving and changing as society changes. Without etiquette, members of society would show far too much impatience and disrespect for one another, which would lead to insults, dishonesty, cheating, road rage, fist fights and a rash of other unfortunate incidents. Etiquette help us show respect and consideration to others and makes others glad that we are with them. Without proper etiquette, the customs of polite society would soon disappear and we would act more like animals and less like people. Aggressiveness and an “every man for himself” and God for us all attitude would take the lead.
