Oh the humanity! Alex is at Whit’s End complaining about the rules his parents give him. He feels they are overbearing, too strict, and should give him “just a little slack.” Mr. Whittaker decides that he might have just the right solution for Alex. He takes him into the Room of Consequences and sets up a scenario. In the invention, Alex is given everything he could possibly want as well as no rules whatsoever! Alex thinks this will be perfect. In "A Matter of Manners," Alex and David are being excessively rude at Whit’s End, so Whit asks them to leave. In order to impress Whit and get back into his good graces, the two of them concoct a plan which names them as "manners experts." Judging everyone on a point system, correcting their fellow students and distributing "Good Manners Badges," the boys become obsessed with their new roles. Back at Whit’s End, Mandy and Whit confront the two of them. Whit agrees that he wants them to police Whit’s End for good manners, but not before they test their ability at eating ice cream politely. The two try their best, but end up failing miserably since Whit has set so many rules. Whit has made his point, explaining that manners are important, but correction should be done in a loving manner.
