Be kind to the waitstaff. Do not interrupt your elders. Say hello when you arrive some place, say goodbye when you leave. Do not comment on a person's eating habits. Do not laugh at someone's misfortune. Hold the door open when someone's right behind you. Be polite to cashiers, janitors, guards, everyone servicing you, be polite to all people, period. Wait for your turn. Do not backstab. Say it upfront, and say it firmly, but kindly. My parents taught me this at a young age. I am appalled a lot of "mature" people do not know of these basic things.
