    It's Just Right

    Silly things like holding the door for someone or allowing someone to cross the road in front of you. What happened to people and why aren't we nicer? I guess it isn't everyone, I meet wonderful, big hearted people all the time, but those few you just wanna smack in the...

    It Costs Nothing And Says So Much.

    I believe in common courtesy alas I fear it is something that we are losing in society with each passing generation.The words Please and Thank You are becoming rare.How often do you hold the door open for the next person entering a premises or give up your seat to an elderly...

    It Is, Sadly, No Longer Common

    Not long ago, while at my local bus terminal, I witnessed a couple teens horsing around.  One of the pair was a boy, the other a girl.  As I watched, somehow the pair crashed into each other.  Both hit the ground.  The boy was up in an instant frantically grabbing for...His...

    Sunday Mornings

    I am always entertained about how people drive and treat their fellow motorists when church lets out. It seems that all the 'goodness' goes out the window and it becomes 'driving for keeps'

    What happened to manners

    and consideration toward others? Give a little take a little. It isn't that hard and makes things in public go a bit smoother. What are they trying to prove? They're a douche or make huge payments on their vehicle? If they want to impress others how about passing out boxes...

    Give Your Courtesy

    the way I see it - when someone is rude, or doesn't say thanks or does not show me courtesy I give them my warmest smile and maybe a wave if I'm driving because they are obviously sad, mad or bad and they need it more than I do

    A Bit Of Kindness May Go A Long Way -- It Might Even Make Somebody's Day

    Common courtesy -- such as holding open the door for the next person, stopping to let someone cross the street, helping people cross the street, and showing kindness to clerks and cashiers assisting you -- is so effortless, and, in my opinion, comes with its own reward, usually a...

    A 'thank You' Would Have Sufficed

    I bought a new digital camera a month ago to replace an older one. The other is not that old, just four years old and in great shape. I paid close to $300 for it back then and only wanted to get $60 for it now. I am not familiar with selling things on eBay so I didn't go there...
