Re: Rude: Where Are Our MannersSep 8th, 2009
Yes, respect can be earned but some people won't let you earn it. They are too full of their own misery. I have an older man who comes in the store about 3 times a week. I say "Good Morning". He doesn't say a word. For the first couple of months I thought he couldn't speak. He will not speak unless he thinks I may have charged him wrong. He carries a scowl on his face as he makes his purchase and shuffles out for the next time. Oddly enough, he nearly always comes through my till.
He's after yer bod, Vanisle. Watch out. Or not.
I like opening doors for ladies. They are not used to it, and invariably say thank you..........If not, I trip them.
Peeve: Guys that drive up to the beer store, and sit in the car while the gal goes in and carries out the beer. Now, that ain't mannerly. And they never offer me any.............go figure.
