Common courtesy–out like the baby with the bath water!

Shame, shame! No one should throw babies out with the bath water! πŸ˜‰

Alas, that’s sometimes what it feels like has happened to common courtesy. And I’m here to Just Say No to Impolite People!

I do realize that I’m sometimes polite to the point of making people vomit, but I’d rather be too polite than not polite enough.

Here’s when I think courtesy is a lovely thing:

  1. When someone holds a door for you instead of slamming it on your face
  2. When someone says something nice to you instead of saying, “My, don’t you look ugly today.”
  3. When someone makes an effort do something nice for you when they don’t have to or don’t want to (like helping you move or going to the bathroom with you)
  4. When a waitress/waiter refills your drink or brings you food (sans spit)
  5. When your honey says or does anything sweet (positive reinforcement will keep him/her doing nice things!)
  6. When someone lets you pull in front of them while driving without trying to bumper car you into a telephone pole
  7. When your gynecologist/prostate exam giver makes it short and sweet
  8. When people bag your food at the grocery store; yes, even though it’s their job
  9. When someone gives you a present, even if you hate it more than brain cancer
  10. Β When your significant other gives you REALLY great sex!

I’m sure there are more examples of when to be considerate and polite, but my #10 has me distracted now and I can’t think of anything but great sex.

On that note, I’m going to go call the hubby. πŸ™‚
