Pleasantness and consideration for other people abound on Common Courtesy Day. Say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, hold doorways open for other people, and think about the feelings and awareness of individuals who are around you during the day.
IMHO--Common courtesy has to be taught. Where? at home. So many people now a days are more interested in success (higher scores, higher grades, prettier, faster etc.) It is a misdirected effort by society to one-up the other guy. It is a reflection of it doesn't matter how you win as long as you win. Parents no longer teach things I taught my children. Yes ma'am. Yes sir, May I? thank you. It is all hurry up and get it done.
Is this right, that is purely a matter of opinion. No where that I know of is it wrong to brighten someone's day. Neither is it wrong to be nice.
Now Respect--you have to earn that. Here in answers the best way is to give the best answer you can. You have to try not to offend but still present your side of the situation. It doesn't hurt any one to be nice. I can think of several people that I respect the way they participate in answers. Gamers just infuriate me. Cheaters infuriate me. Do it honestly and respect will come. Any thing worth having is worth working for.
That's it. Just my opinion, but you asked.
I think its a dying practice sadly.
YES its dying practice!
I just cant believe how selfish and inconsiderate people can be. I see this every day when I catch the train.
I get pushed aside forcefully by the stronger, taller males just so they can get a seat. I have given up my seat for the elderly and pregnant coz the kids and other able bodied people (both male/female) are just too inconsiderate to give up their seat.
What happened to common courtesy?
It is mostly venting. Common courtesy isn't taught in the homes as it once was.We sometimes allow the stresses of the day to control our actions. I apologize and ask that you forgive them. Please continue to hang up if they don't stop after being cautioned. This will remind them not to act in that manner. Don't forget to record the call in case it comes up later. Peace.
