how people see you might surprise you?

Today I went junking… like I do every Tuesday. I go to 4 of the same antique shops. I have become very friendly with all of the people that work there. I know all their names and they know mine… Today one of the ladies told me, You are always so polite.

It took me back for a second because I do not ever think of myself that way… but I do always say please and thank you! ALWAYS….  I just thought everyone said please and thank you when dealing with sales people????

I guess good up bringing pays off LOL

That’s a very nice compliment. Good upbringing is great. I try to do the same thing, when people do me favors, or when I’m asking for something.

I get compliments like that but not as often…I always try to be nice and see the bigger picture from their point of view and if you are polite then everyone is polite.

I always say please and thank you. Many years ago, I went someplace to get something to eat. I was being nice to the person and she said that customers had been mean to her all day and that me being nice had been exactly what she needed at the time.

Please, thank you, yes ma’am/sir (no matter the age of the person) were engrained into me as a Southerner. lol. People not from here look at me funny when I say yes ma’am to someone my age or a little younger, but I can’t help it.

Good manners are very important.  One must treat staff just as politely as you treat visitors.

Good manners goes a long way!

Coming from being raised by an ex Navy man I say please, thank you no sir, ma’am, etc.  It’s something I’ve vowed to ingrain in my future children,
