I adore children. However, when other people allow their kids to be disruptive, I get annoyed...but not as much at the little ones as the parents. Before people take their children out in public, they need to make sure they've taught them proper manners.
That said, there's no guarantee that the child will remember everything, so be prepared to do on-the-spot discipline. If that doesn't work, remove the child from the premises so others can carry on without additional disruption. Here's what I recommend you do when you find yourself in the presence of Other People's Bad-Mannered Children.

Here are 12 Things Not to Say or Do Around Your Boss.

I'm often appalled by the behavior certain celebrities display and even more appalled that they get away with it. Being rich and famous doesn't give anyone license to treat others badly. Not only that, it sets a terrible example for fans who think that if their favorite star is misbehaving it's okay.
Although Alec Baldwin isn't the only ridiculously rude celebrity, he keeps popping up in the news. Crude Twitter tirades and refusing to follow cell phone rules on flights should have the etiquette police sending him to manners rehab. I've seen him acting very nice to his family and close friends, so I know he has it in him.
Here are some guidelines Alec Baldwin and other rude celebrities should follow:
