“Respect for ourselves guides our morals;
Respect for others guides our manners.”
I have noticed that basic letter writing manners in emails, text messaging manners and phone manners has largely disappeared. Often when I am speaking over the phone for the first time with a new slave or submissive, I am shocked by the number of you who fail to introduce yourselves to Me by name and I am placed in a position where I have to ask who I am speaking with. Do you not realise how impolite that is?
In terms of slaves and submissives contacting Me via email, by default I would expect you to know better than to address Me in familiar terms. Yet the number of you who fail to address Me by name at all at the beginning of your email and/or don’t bother to sign off with your own name, is appalling. Then there are the slaves or subs who send Me text messages in the same manner – you don’t bother addressing Me by name at the start of your message and more often than not, bother even less to sign your name at the end of your message. And you expect to get a response from Me! For a start I need to know WHO I would be responding to and if you give Me no name to address My message back to you, I will not bother replying.
It goes without saying that as a slave or submissive, you should have enough manners to be respectful and polite to any Dominant (Female or Male) but many of you fail atrociously with even basic courtesy skills and this has been My experience when some of you communicate with Me.
Are your lack of manners due to not being taught these in this day and age?
Is it due to laziness on your part because technology makes it so easy for you to communicate quickly and speed is all that matters to you?
Or has society, and thus you, become too self-centred to care about others to use basic courtesy in your communications?
I do not know the answer. I only know that I have had many discourteous communications in more recent times. Let this be a lesson for any potential submissive or slave wishing to contact Me – use basic courtesy skills such as addressing Me by name and signing off your communication to Me with your name (I don’t care if it is a fake one), if you wish to get a response. That applies to emails AND text messages sent to Me.
Respectful and polite communication, especially on the first occasion, is far more likely to reward you with a more favourable response in return.
