I know a lot of people wear hats. I consider it bad manners to wear a hat in doors, especially in a restaurant.

How many of you go into a restaurant, sit down and do not remove your hat?

I always wear a hat, Esther a ball cap or cowboy hat. I wear a ball cap so much that I forget that I have one on. If I’m wearing a cowboy hat I usually take it off.

My husband has now gotten into the practice of leaving his baseball cap in the car if we are going into a restaurant, even if it's a casual one. I agree that it's bad manners to wear a hat at the table. But in a society where many men don't take their hates off when the national anthem is playing or when saying the pledge of allegiance it's not a surprise.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

All the years in the Army and removing your hat as you went indoors was a habit.Old habits are not that hard to break after all I guess. I guess it depends on where we eat and if I have one on when we leave the house.

I’ve seen men wearing their hats in church through the service.
My hat (ball cap or tweed flat cap) comes off going into church or when sitting down at a table; I don’t always take it off just going into a store.

The older I get, the less I care what other people do. I don't even notice things like that anymore. Life is much happier when you don't allow yourself to be offended or bothered by other people.

I wonder why anyone would think wearing a hat inside is rude , What is the difference . I would think that we have enough to fret about without looking for more .

When I was a kid, my mom would dress up AND install a fancy hat - especially for church. She did not take it off during church or after church if we went out for lunch. She only took it off after she got home no matter where we went, even to relatives for a visit.

My dad would wear a suit, and a hat. He took it off at church, he took it off at a restaurant, he took it off indoors as he entered any public place.

Neither my brothers nor my sisters wore a hat when we went out someplace.

No one was offended by either mom or dad ... or my six siblings. No one slapped us, no one arrested us, no one sued us. Happy good ole days !!!

We didn't have portable phones that deleted us from social activities when we went out together either.

It's called manners, and social graces, like not belching in public, eating with your mouth open, holding a door open for someone, saying "Please and Thank You", just part of what makes a civilization civilized.
