    Well, then, I guess that means your understanding of manners is distorted.

    This wasn't a tough interview. A tough interview is one where you're treated with respect but held to task nevertheless.

    You throw a lot of opinion and critisism out there but never point to exactly what was disrespectful.

    Thanks for the chat. We are done.

    How to Have Good Manners - wikiHow

    Don't interrupt, cut off or override others, unless they are insulting or swearing, etc. Give others respect and try letting them finish. Practice being a listener!
    Social Etiquette and Good Manners: Interrupting an conversation, interruptions, glance

    What do you do if you approach two people at work who are talking and you need to speak to one of them? I believe the correct thing to do is to wait quietly and patiently until the first conversation is done.
    Dear Wayne,

    Thank you for your question.

    If you see two people engaged in what seems like a business discussion, the best thing to do is to go back to your desk and wait. There is nothing more annoying - except interruptions - than to have someone standing there waiting for you to finish a conversation. If you catch the person's glance during the approach, say excuse me, I don't mean to interrupt, but can I see you after you are finished here? Then return to your desk.

    If you are in a situation where you've come to a different floor or distant part of the office, go ahead and wait patiently for them to finish. Just don't hover too close.

    I hope this helps.

    Robin

    I did. You said it was acceptable. I can't help it if your grasp of manners is lacking.

    I haven't read all the 200+ posts in this thread so I don't know if this has already been brought up, but I wonder if you were just as incensed when Dan Rather went after George Bush senior and eventually cut him off.

    I also wonder if this reporter had treated Sarah Palin the same way, if you would be so on her side if she complained about being cut off, or would you just see her as playing the "victim card" again?

    This thread has reached a new level of stupidity. You're asking him whether he was pissed about something that happened nearly 20 years ago? Are you even remotely f'n serious about debating politics? What's next? Are you going to ask whether he was angry about that time that Nixon was grilled about his involvement in Water Gate? I'm sure you'll blow a casket if Dan tells you he didn't really care.

    It is a total joke and complete joke that you brought this up, for two reasons:

    1) Bush and Rather took turns interrupting each other. They were both rude.

    2) I was 11 when that was filmed, so it would've been most unusual for me to have noticed it at the time.

    Rude is rude, no matter who or what, regardless of the fact that Sarah Palin is a laughing stock from where I'm sitting.
