For some reason I forgot about this until now...
Yesterday morning before work, I went to Panera to eat breakfast
(stay with me, this is not the forgotten part)
and walked through the door and noticed a lady walking toward the door with a
huge bag of bagels and a purse and coffee in her hand.
So I naturally held the door open for her...
and she shockingly said "thank you."
How sad is it that people are genuinely surprised when
someone shows common courtesy?
Do yourself and a stranger a favor today.
Do something nice for someone you don't know.
I know, I know... "paying it forward" is such old news...
but is it really?
This is a coloring page for children.
Don't tell me everyone has forgotten
what they learned in kindergarten.
I looked for pictures labeled "courtesy"
on weheartit.com, but this is all I found:
Isn't that nice?
Don't get me wrong. It's really funny.
We'll leave it that.
