  • Open door for others
  • Offer a seat to someone who is elderly or disabled
  • Pick up something someone dropped for them
  • When there is a line wait your turn patiently
  • Listen when someone is talking and make eye contact to show you are paying attention
  • Raise your hand instead of shouting out when in a group
  • Write thank you notes
  • Practice answering the phone politely
  • At meal time or while working with shared supplies, ask for an item to be passed to you instead of reaching over someone or grabbing the item away from another person
