Please and thank you make a difference and it's something I'm constantly reminding my 3.5 year old.
No, not at all. I feel they are very much there. However with friends and family, its a bit odd to use too much of thank you and sorry. Instead of saying, rather show it through your actions
I don't think so; I use them often enough. I don't like when people are rude!

I don't think so. People who have respect still use them.
In my opinion it's a generation thing. Some generations understand the importance of manners, others don't. Please and thank you is a really nice way of acknowledging someone and letting them know that you respect them.
I don't think so. I hear and use them every day. Even my two year old is picking them up. You do get some rude people who never or rarely use them.
I have seen only a slight decline.
People seem to be in another world, and if I thank someone
as I always do...I guess some are taken - a - back, because I
get from them''That's o.k...your welcome.''
That I have noticed a lot.
I guess also it means , if you are really saying Thank You
and being sincere about it.There is a big difference.

Manners make a person I think.
I don't think so.It is something that needs to be taught,observed and reminded.
Not in Danish or english I belive it depens what agegroup we are talking about
Yes that is bloody true & also gone is 'Excuse me'
Everyone with mobile the moment their phone rings they just forget about their friends or people around & just get on with their dumb conversation as it was the most important call.The typical sight in a restaurant.....a group of friends come & sit down. & before long you see them busy with their useless talk .
I volunteer two mornings a week at a primary school breakfast program and while some kids are good at saying these two words, others need to be reminded, obviously having no lessons from home about it and requesting things in a demanding manner. They are perturbed about having to use these two words for this free program we provide.

When one of the volunteers asks 'what's the magic word' meaning please, which it was for her generation (60's age group), kids think she means 'abracadabra'.
I get very annoyed when I stand back & allow another person to go firstly, no thanks given.

In supermarket aisle, let someone through requiring me to wait whilst doing so, no thanks given.
Stop on narrow street to allow car through, no thanks given.
But even though there're rude people not acknowledging my courtesy, I can't stop doing it, as this is what both my Parents' & Schooling taught me!
