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