    Come on. Is it really so hard to hold a door for someone, say excuse me, please and thank you, or even smile at a stranger?

    Rudeness

    What is it that makes people believe that they can do or say whatever they like as if they are the only person on this planet that matters? Are they born this way or bread this way? Went to dinner with my family last night and as we are ordering we hear a lady from the table by...

    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...

    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...

    It Costs Nothing And Says So Much.

    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'

    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...

    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

    Not Something That Is Taught

    Common Courtesy is something that shouldn't be taught. It should be something that people learn when they grow up. Its a little something that when it does happen brings a little happiness or thoughtfullness into people's lives. Some items of common courtesy include holding 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...
