what ever happened to the word "please"?

It seems like young ones today have already forgotten manners. They ask you to do things without using courtesy words like "please" or "could you please". They give commands instead the way they do it in the military.

When do we use the word "please"? Whenever we request someone to do something for us it is important that we say "please" like "Please close the door" or "Please give me that". Requests, in contrast to a command, almost always yield positive results.
