Mangled Manners

“When you break wind, it’s ‘pardon me,’ not ‘that’s better out than in.’”
-- Vera Duckworth (to Jack)

The British are "slobs" who lack basic table manners, according to a survey.

A new book has been published just in time to rescue the Brits and all the rest of us. ‘Talk to the Hand: The Utter Bloody Rudeness of the World Today, or Six Good Reasons to Stay Home and Bolt the Door’ is written by Lynne Truss, author of the best-selling 'Eats, Shoots and Leaves.' This time, Lynne turns her attention to the lack of civility and good manners in modern society.

And now over to you, Corrie Canuck readers. Who do you think is the Coronation Street character most in need of a manners makeover?
