I was noted as having "nice manners" yesterday and the sweet sales lady asked me "Where did you get your manners?"
I almost had to chuckle and said "Why, my Mother. And, I am working on my son to do the same." (Thank you to my parents!)
I was brought up to be thankful and gracious in all the small things people do for me everyday. When you go through a day, many people actually push you along the way. I choose to thank them or at least give them a smile.
And, this comment from the sales lady got me thinking.
Is having manners so distinct from the masses that it stands out as a dying breed?
Do people not say please and thank you anymore?
It concerns me that this may be the case.
What do you think?
