Basic Manner !!

This incident happened last weekend.

We were just on the way to our new house, to just check the progress of the construction. PK was driving and in front of our car, there was a car, which had family, parents and two kids. Suddenly someone from that car threw two banana peels outside from the window, on the road. We both were surprised that how can a parent allow their children to do this type of job. Have they not taught them to use the dustbin?

After sometime, once again they threw orange peel from the window on the road and then once again banana peels. We seriously got pissed off. How can they throw wastes on the road? Don’t they teach the children the basic manners? PK thought of telling them what their children have done. Luckily, we were in signal and we just came beside that car and what we saw there was shocking? Actually it was not children who threw the wastes on the road, but it was mom who was doing that. Even in the signal, she threw some more wastes on the road, that too in front of her children. We were shocked to see that.

How can a mother do these types of things in front of children? She is the one who teach the children the basic manners and she herself is doing these types of mistakes. The children who are seeing this definitely follow her and do the same mistake. I don’t know whether the driver was her husband or just a driver. But being a mother, she should herself understand what the basic manner she has to follow.

Before we could tell them something, they left that place and I was totally furious. I was just keep on telling PK that how can she do this? PK was telling me to forget it and why am I getting so much irritated? I don’t know, I don’t like these types of things, that too in front of kids. I don’t like to give any wrong examples to kids. I know I am exaggerating too much, but I can’t just tolerate it.

What do you think about this incident? Am I wrong in my feeling? What do you do in this type of situation?

    I think in front of children or not..this behavior is not accepted at all…But people will never learn on their own..that's why our country is not progressing by all means…cause people don't feel that it's their moral duty to keep the roads clean… sigh !we can only watch or sometimes stop these people..but there is no guarantee that they will not behave like this again..

    Nu: Yes you are first :)You are absolutely correct. They never learn it. I just wanted to mention that if they are not able to change the behaviour, atleast dont show that behaviour in front of kids.
