Mad props to the polite

So, it occurred to me that maybe instead of just bitching all the time, I need to give some shout-outs to the well-mannered in our society.

Good manners I saw this weekend:

  • A teenage boy who insisted I enter before him as he held the (automatic) door. Very sweet.
  • A parent who was actually calming his wailing child at Trader Joe's.
  • A parent who fed his daughter from the samples table at Trader Joe's, rather than opening up a bag of unpaid-for food and eating it right there in the store.
Cheers to the well-mannered everywhere! We love you!
