“Good manners and kindness are always in fashion” 

Is it my age?  

Have I pole vaulted across a line in time where I am tutting and shaking at my head at ‘the youngsters’ 

If it is, I have bought into it and my varifocals are picking up on everything manners related.  

I talk a lot about the customer experience with clients and the more I do and see the more I think – some of this is manners people?  
Acknowledging someone when they say hello?  

Manners.  

Holding the door for someone who is impersonating a Sherpa with all the bags they are carrying (me).  

Manners.  

Assisting someone when they come into your place of work?  

Manners AND WHAT YOU ARE PAID TO DO -  RIGHT?  

I do have this strange mindset that I want to kill people with kindness – you know when you have a mission within you to make someone smile? I do it with taxi drivers all the time- I am sure they see me coming now – if they are rude to me I tip them.  The ruder they are – the higher my tip.  

There is something wrong with me.  

 I am going to start a manners movement and see what happens…  

Please? Thankyou?
