Tips on Tuesday: About Manners

Having good manners is very important. Like, always raising your hand before speaking out in class. Mr. Shrill has very bad manners. But his twin brother, Mr. Swell, has learned good manners! I have helped Mr. Shrill and Mr. Swell prepare this demonstration about manners!
Mr. Swell always chews his candy with his mouth shut. He only takes small bites, and he says "Thank you" for the candy.
Mr. Shrill takes large bites, chews with his mouth open, and smears chocolate all over! Sometimes he touches the furniture with his chocolate-covered hands. He is a mess!
Mr. Swell is always in a good mood. He likes to smile and be nice.
Mr. Shrill frowns and complains all the time. Sometimes he even says bad words!
Mr. Swell knows that he should always use a tissue when he has to sneeze or blow his nose.
Mr. Shrill scratches his face and picks at his nose when it itches. And he never washes his hands.
I hope you learned a lot so you can be more like Mr. Swell than Mr. Shrill!

85 Notes for Daisy:

Evie/VampyVictor said...

But Miss Daisy, they are human thingys, I mean we clean our special spots in public!!
What more can I say ? :P hehehe
But it is good to make sure Humans do things right, after all they look after us :)

The Meezers said...

That was a furry good lessong Daisy. We would like to know what Mr Swell thinks about sniffing other kitties, er, um, well, private areas?

Sen and Tom said...

Thanks for all the good advice, Daisy! #1 says I have perfect manners even though I insist on licking everyone's noses!

Your Pal,
Sen-Chan

Whicky Wuudler said...

I think there is a definate market for "Daisy's Book of Etiquette"

Parker said...

You should always use a tissue. Mr. Shrill boogers would be awful to look at!

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Did we miss an episode? We did not realize Mr. Shrill had a twin brother! Obviously Mr. Swell will be invited to more functions with his fine manners, Daisy!

gemmak said...

Daisy darling, your manners are impeccable I'm sure and your raising your hand in class is most impressive :o))

Anita said...

I just LOVE that someone is taking the time and effort to teach some of these naughty people proper manners. Thanks so much Miss Daisy, your manners are purrrrfect.

Anita

Spooky said...

Daisy, these are all very good lessons. We should all use our manners every day. Have you ever seen a cat pick its nose?

musing said...

Are you sure Mr. Swell isn't Mr. Shill's imaginary brother? :)

Eric and Flynn said...

Mr. Swell is much nicer than Mr.Shrill. We are glad that he has much better manners than his brother.

Petey said...

Daisy you forgot about remembering to keep your shirt tucked in...which is REALLY hard when you don't wear pants!

Your pals,

Mica and Petey

i beati said...

Mr. Swell you saved the day - Daisy thank you for demonstrating in that lovely manner how to raise one's pawhand. One would not believe I have all these wonderful cats because I cannot wait to see your smile every day . Hi from Princeman, Sweetheart, Toppy, Bitty Bopper, Pinky and Angel Baby(who is being very bad this morning- picking up kittens and hiding them from Pinky ))

Hannah Fanna said...

Thank you for those smart tips, Daisy!

That was very funny!

Lois Grebowski said...

LOL @ Evie/Vampy Victor and the meezers...

So I take it that this is human bean advice?

Keisha said...

I be studying a lot. Mostly I be studying about where to lie on the floor.

JD at I Do Things said...

Ewwww! I never realized how gross Mr. Shrill was. Thank goodness for Mr. Swell. (I do sometimes have problems with smearing chocolate around, but I'm working on it.)

You are such a good citizen helping your friends with proper manners. I think you should be president.

Purrs and headbutts,
Sabrina, Sam and Simon

Alasandra said...

Those were very good tips. We will invite Mr. Swell to parties, I am afraid his brother on the other hand will not be issued and invitation.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Oh Daisy, Mr. Swell has such good manners! Thank you for this lesson!

-d ma said...

i wonder if they had the same parents and if so how mr. swell can be so smart and proper and mr. shrill such a clueless dope.

Angel Cake said...

Mr Shrill is very nawty!

Kelly Cat said...

Mr. Shrill sounds more like a typical Mister than Mr. Swell does. I think Mr. Swell is an imaginary creature.

Tybalt said...

Mr. Shrill sure has a lot to learn from Mr. Swell!

The Island Cats said...

Thanks for the lesson, Daisy. Mr. Shrill is a mess!

Wally, Ernie & Zoey

Purrageous Pirates said...

Thank you for the lessons on manners. We need to make our woofies read this because they have no manners at all!! We, as cats, are of course perfect. Always.

DEBRA said...

Those were great examples of what is good manners vs bad manners...we are so glad you were able to share this with us today..

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Oh dear. This looks like a Tripper Tutorial if ever there was one!!!

dennisthevizsla said...

Hmm, Mr. Shrill and Mr. Swell look very similar, and they don't seem to ever appear together. I think there may be a Jekyll & Hyde thing going on here. Have you noticed that Mr. Swell pops open a small vial of bubbling fluid and drinks it before Mr. Shrill shows up?

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I have never had to use a tissue for my nose though. And I take very small bites of my cat food.

Gemini

Junior said...

Wow! Mr. Swell is quite the gentleman.....

Mrs Mecomber said...

Aoise said...

There are lots of beans who need to read your tips Daisy. Manners are furry impawtant.

Sunny's Mommy said...

I like Mr. Swell a lot better!!

Furkidsmom said...

We didn't know Mr Shrill had a twin brother. We think maybe Mr Swell is his other purrsonality trying to come out.

Angus Mhor said...

I'm with the others..what about the things we cats do as part of our normal, you know, catness? We sniff and lick and yak...and then we do it again! But it is good for Mr. Shrill to have a good example in Mr. Swell to follow..now, if he'd only pay attention!

Forty Paws said...

OMDawg! Mr. Shrill is a PIG!

Tripper the Psyko Stray Cat said...

BonzoGal said...

Are Mr. Shrill and Mr. Swell related to Goofus and Gallant at all?

Camie's Kitties said...

Mom said that reminds her of the Highlights characters Goofus and Gallant. Thanks for the lessons. They were very good.

Tiki, Tavi, Cody, Camie and Miss Jade

The Furry Kids said...

That is a good lesson, Daisy. Mama is now convinced that she works with Mr. Shrill. Especially after she saw the parts about him frowning and complaining and being a messy eater and picking his nose. Yep. She works with him. Gross!

T'Abby Normal said...

WoW! I bet Mr. Shrill uses his sleeve too, when blowing his nose. You better teach him.

Purrs,
Abby & Stygia

Lorianna said...

You are so funny Daisy and Mommie! :)
I didn't know Mr. Shrill had a brother! Hopefully Mr. Swell's manners will rub off. (And hopefully, Mr. Shrill's icky stuff wont rub off on your furniture and furs. Yuck!)
Have a really great day!
Hugs and smoochies,
Lorianna

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

Daisy Mr. Swell is teaching us all good manners! Mr. Shrill could also learn from Mr. Swell.

I know lots of people you can give manners classes to Miss Daisy!

Black Cat said...

Manners maketh (gingerbread) man!

My finger is a little better, thanks for asking, but I have now stubbed my toe, which hurts but can't be nearly as bad as your poor Mommie's torn off toe nail. That has to hurt Big Time! Please give her my love and sympathy! :) xxx

DaisyMae Maus said...

Is Mr. Shrill a ninth grader? Mom says that Mr. Shrill behaves furry much like her students. Perhaps you should give Mr. Swell extra credit an' Mr. Shrill a DETENTION!

I like to sit in a chair next to Mommy at the dinner table and lick between my toes. Is that bad manners?
