Okay so here is the deal! When did people get so rude? I mean have manners and simple politeness escaped human beings forever?
Yeah I know that is a bit of an angry rant but indulge me a little. Needing to get some grocery items for my offering to the Thanksgiving table I went shopping. On Thanksgiving eve. Rookie mistake but I’m busy and sometimes last-minute just has to do. I took the oldest with me as we went to the dreaded walmart. Another Rookie mistake as I should have just wet to Publix!
Anyhoo. We get there and it is naturally a mad house with people everywhere! I kept 7yo close by but people were not caring who was in their way. Seriously, just because you are riding a scooter down the aisles does not give you freedom to nearly run over my child and not say i am sorry!
Here is my public service announcement of the day! It’s not okay to bump into people and not say I’m sorry. It is definitely not okay to nearly run over a child and not say I’m sorry! Or how about a simple excuse me and we can just move aside because you asked so nicely!
I am a mother trying to teach my children respect and manners as best that I can. No wonder kids today do not respect adults and have the basics as simple as saying please, thank you and can you excuse me. People just think that because they are in a rush that it is okay to throw manners out the window. Get a grip and Grow up people.
Okay rant over, sorry just needed to get that out! Whew I feel better 🙂
