Don’t Be Rude!

Get to the bar at Obrycki’s, order a coffee and a wrap, I say please.
It comes, I say thank you. She does a double take and I didn’t know why.
While eating, I decide to get a mimosa, so I order it, and I say please, followed by thank you when it promptly arrives.

Later when my plate was empty I put my already used boarding pass and asked if she could please throw it away for me, thank you.

She says something I don’t fully catch (airports are LOUD), so I ask her to repeat it. She said (she had looked at my boarding pass) “you’re one of the nicest New Englander’s I’ve met, everything you asked for was accompanied by ‘please’, and everything you received was followed by ‘thank you’ and a smile, and it’s really nice!”

Society, have we become so rude and entitled that saying please and thank you are the EXCEPTION, not the RULE? Because that’s unacceptable! It pained me to see such a sweet bartender so surprised by MANNERS.

If you are making a request, say PLEASE. When it’s met, say THANK YOU. It’s THAT simple!

Headed to Michigan!

I’m coming for ya, Michigan! ❤

I am headed there to spend time with one of my absolute best friends, and her family. We will laugh, be goofy, mastermind, watch U of M football, eat yummy food, drink yummy drinks, and just be grateful we found and connected with each other.

It gets no better! She is my person ❤
