Where are your manners

maniac

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 🙂

I am a wife of ten years, mom of three, Nurse and student! My household is quite chaotic and busy. With a six year old going on sixteen. we shall call her "Sassy", a four year old, who is stubborn as a mule, she shall be called " mini me", and a one year old, we will call "Buddy". Our girls do Ballet, and our son, well he is all boy! Very curious and always getting in to something. When we found out we were having a boy i laughed and said " god must have known we needed a little less diva in our life," Ha, little boys are quite the handful! I love my kids with all of my heart, and i love my job too! As a nurse leader i get to see many sides to healthcare and help encourage and guide new nurses. I love taking care of patients and being able to have grown up talk and then come home to my babies. The house is usually chaotic with lots of tantrums, and messes, but i wouldn't change it for a bit. On the rare occasion that i am able to have some spare time to myself, i like to read, bake and decorate cakes, and take pictures of my kiddos. Time to myself is rare so i decided to start this blog to have a creative outlet and connect with other working moms, who might be going through the same situations as myself. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and stories as a mom, student, wife and Nurse! These stories will range from Diapers and tutus to meetings and boardrooms! and everything that falls in between. Enjoy and thanks for visiting my site.

  1. I totally agree. I always say excuse me or us when walking past people. I never hear it back. The other day i was trying to go down an isle and a women and 2 kids were coming up. They just plowed right thru without saying one word. The woman bumped into me but went on like I was invisible.
