Taking hats off indoors is a courtesy

Darian Nishida, Reporter

Back in the day, men were taught to remove their hats as soon as they crossed the threshold of a house or public building, and ladies were to remove theirs if they obstructed someone’s view. And if you don’t remove your hat it will be considered Rude. I always wear my hat indoors because I don’t understand the old fashion thinking about taking off  hats indoors, but now I understand because it is rude if you don’t take off your hat. I learned that wearing your hat indoors is rude and that when you take it off you are showing respect and kindness.
