Bullet Point Wednesday...On Common Courtesy and Politeness
*When rounding a corner in a hallway, it’s best to stick on the right side so you don’t smash into a person who may be rounding the corner from the opposite direction.
*This also work on stairways.
*And going through double doors.
*In the event that you are a directionally challenged moron and run into the person who has the ‘right of way’, it’s customary to apologize profusely, inquire about their well being , and help them pick up the stuff they dropped when you mowed them down.
*It is NOT the appropriate to stare at them with a sneer, like it was their fault, and walk off without a word.
*For the record, this makes you a super-duper, triple-quadruple moron.
*To the power of infinity
* With no hope of redemption
*While we’re on the subject...
* You should also acknowledge someone whom you meet face-to-face in an empty hallway.
*Especially if they look you in the eye and say ‘hello’.
*And use your first name.
*When you don’t, it makes them think that they may have accidentally left their super power Cape of Invisibility on. How embarrassing!
*And you know how difficult it is to see an invisible garment on your own back to double check!
*Don’t slam the door in people’s faces either.
*Especially if you see that their hands are full.
*We’re not stupid. We know you saw us coming. Because we DON'T have The Cape on. We checked back there in the hallway.
*'Please' and 'thank you' wouldn’t hurt either.
* And 'excuse me' goes a loooonnnngggg way too!
*It only takes a minute to be polite and considerate.
*Go ahead. Make your mum proud o' ya. I double dog dare you.
