Poor Emily Post Must Be Rolling Over In Her Grave!

sunday

Well it’s noon here and I’m still lazing around in bed with a huge mug of tea. I feel like I’ve missed that window of opportunity to get up and gt dressed so I may as well see this through and stay where I’m at. I’m no quitter.

I’m currently reading Odd but True by Cat Winters, which doesn’t come out until September so you’ll have to wait until then to hear about it!

It’s been a regular show down at the O.K. Corral up in Washington. So I am trying my best not to react with a scathing article on grownups acting like 4 year olds! No, that’s not quite true. Our four-year old would never behave that badly in public.

What in the world has happened to Kindness? My theory? I’m so glad you asked…Kindness needs to be modeled by the people who are raising you. I learned about kindness from my father. He was kind to everyone he met. And not some phony way. It was in him, and he taught us all to be the same way. It costs nothing to be kind. And it costs nothing to defend those who are and to avoid those that aren’t.

Emily Post must be rolling over in her grave! Manners, people! Use them, get some and teach your children about them. Basically if you can’t think of something nice to say, smile and move on. Oh, for those of you who don’t know who Emily Post is, she was an American author famous for writing about etiquette ( or how to behave in public)

Back to reading! Have a safe and peaceful Sunday!

  1. I miss mannerly people. I hate going into the convenience store every Friday morning to get my coffee for work and the newest employee is just so surly and it has ruined the experience of getting coffee (and that’s saying a lot)

  2. Ms. Post would be rolling over in her grave to see the world now. Surly teens with their britches hanging down below their under britches and a grunt for a reply to a question. Where has all the kindness gone? There were many of us who it was not modeled for but we learned by what we wanted rather than what we had. It will go either way for some. You look at #45 and I’d bet something was very unbalance at home somewhere. So many lash out because they haven’t figured out it gets them nowhere. That serious lack of empathy shows they have not had enough lessons somewhere. When I see surly, I add a heavy does of smiles and kindness. I keep extra in my pockets for those who have none. So many get to Washington on the road of backs they have walked on. Unkindness reaps huge rewards that it seems to be the way to go. I’m sure Ms Post would be giving so many a dressing down if the shock didn’t kill her. 🙂 Hope you enjoyed your relaxed Sunday. Catching up here. 🙂
