Your mother may have told you to mind them; your father may have insisted you watch them; and hopefully someone in your life taught you some; today's happy is manners.
I always enjoy it when I see someone, young or old, being polite or considerate of others. It gives me a little joy to know that somethings have not gone out of style.
Unfortunately, manners is something that is sort of a rarity now. Not just from 'young people' but a lot of the 'seniors' as well. It is like living in a world where everyone thinks that they are entitled to everything. It is just...well....bizarre.
My joy comes from watching parents teach their children manners. I see it and I appreciate their efforts. When I watch entitled old people have less manners than a 3 year old, well that to me is just insanity. And what do you say? Crazy Old Fart.
One of my pet peeves, is something that I comment on a lot when I am out with George, is how "Have a nice day." has been replaced with "Have a good one." A good what? What am I suppose to have good? Did I miss something during our brief moment of transacting? It is something of a mystery to me. I wish someone could enlighten me as to what 'good one' they are referring to. Sometimes I think I am going to frighten the young ones and tell them "Don't worry, my husband's got this. We have it planned and everything."
Well, this is a bit longer...
Be Present. Be Mindful. Be Happy!
and to sound young... "Have a good one."
Happy Does It! ;o)
