Manners

    This is just my take on one of the things wrong with our society. We are lacking in MANNER'S! It seams to me that most people might have some manners but are A) to lazy to use them B) embarrassed to use them or C) don't want to stand out.
   Is it really that hard to hold a door open for someone? Will the split second it takes make you that late? I like holding doors open for people and giving them a smile. It is amazing how many people don't know how to respond to this. Some just look at me funny and walk by without saying anything. Other's will stop and take hold of the door from me say thank you, and hold it for the next person.
   Please and Thank you are words that should be said also. How difficult is it to say Thank You when someone does something for you? When asking for anything Please should also be used. I guess all I'm saying is we need to slow down a touch and lead by example. Thank you for reading this and have a great day! Until next time take care

I agree with you 100%, hospitality is something else that seems to have gone out the window in today's society.

Linda-
I agree with you 100%! Don't know how many times I have gone to someones home and never been offered a glass of water a pop or coffee. It's one of the first things we do at our home.
