Read something today that touched on this subject – since I wrote this at the beginning of my blogging experience and many were not yet here I thought it would be worth a re-blog!
Sounds simple enough, everyone knows you should have good manners. I can’t imagine any dominant that would be okay with having His/Her submissive disrespect them or be generally rude. We all know we should say please and thank you, we all know we should be polite and choose our words wisely. But is it just with our dominants that the manners count?
In my view having good manners applies to everyone we encounter, not just our DOM. Even if you fall into that ‘I don’t care what everyone else thinks’ category (which I don’t agree has anything to do with it, but moving on) my job is to please Sir. I don’t believe that behaving rudely or disrespectfully to anyone would impress Him very much.
My Sir wants me to carry myself in a way that makes others want to ‘be’ Him not feel sorry for Him because he’s been stuck with me. I strive to be the best person I can be always and even if the other person doesn’t deserve it then at least do it for your dominant. Hopefully somewhere along the way you will start doing it for your own worth and self respect.
