Good manners....

....cost nothing, or so the saying goes. Unless someone really riles me, I genuinely do my best to be polite, albeit that it's often a rather cold kind of politeness, because, as I've said ad nauseam, I'm really not a 'people person'. But there are times when I wonder why I bother. Saturday night in my local, and, of course, it's pretty busy. I've just been to the bar, and, as I was heading there, a party of 8 or 9 were leaving for their next port of call, so I stood aside to let them pass. Not one, not fucking one of them,  bothered to acknowledge my action. Consideration for others seems to be taken as a sign of weakness nowadays. 'If you can't beat them, join them', to be as rude as the rest, is a very tempting prospect.

Love & best wishes to all

      It doubtless makes me sound like an old curmudgeon, but I do get annoyed by bad manners. After all, how difficult is it to say 'please' and 'thank you', to hold a door for someone, to step aside to allow someone to pass?
