Can you believe this?

The other day, I was told by a check-out person that it was a pleasure to finally find someone who says ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. Can you believe that?
I found that unbelievable.
What’s the matter, people? Are you not saying please and thank you? Don’t you think it would help make your shopping experiences better? Think about it.
Please and Thank You are a very old custom, dating back to ‘I don’t know when’. It’s a formal custom that shows respect for the person you’re dealing with. And it is a well know, scientific fact that if you show respect and consideration to others, you will receive that in turn. Most of the time. Unfortunately there are still people out there who think they don’t have to do that. But if you persevere, you will make your life much easier.
We’re getting way too into the ‘me’ mode. You’re thinking ‘I am the only one who will take care of me’. Well, life is not really like that. You have to give before you can expect to get. Start treating people with a little more respect and see what happens. Evidently some of you will be surprised.
