Please and Thank You


Have you noticed there are no “please” and “thank you” anymore.  I’ve been testing the theory lately as people seem so rushed and rude.  I always say “thank you” when someone opens the door for me…or, at the grocery store I throw in a “thank you” to the clerk as a common courtesy.  Rarely do I get a return “thank you”….

I even tried it when I was at the doctor the other day and having some lab work….who wants to thank the lab technician after they’ve taken half of your blood?  No, I don’t…but I did give a big “Thank You!”  In return….I was told to take my paperwork to the front desk!  Well, thank YOU very much! 

Test the your social skills when you are out and see what happens…Starbuck’s always give a “thank you” and have a good day, however, they do receive tips.  I always tip at Starbuck’s as common courtesy is great…even if it is paid for!
