Lately, I’ve noticed that I have become cranky about civility. To be precise, I should say that lack of civility!
Civility is defined as courtesy, politeness, a polite act or expression.
I’m cranky because I miss the civility I grew up with. No, I don’t think it’s just my age. However, I do think it has something to do with the “Yellow Brain” influence on my personalty. “Yellow Brainers” value acting in an appropriate and respectful fashion.
For example: I become cranky when a sales clerk says, “Sign here” and shoves a credit card sales slip at me.
My response to their command is: “Do you known the Magic Word?”
First, shock blankets their face; then an admonished grin appears; followed by a child-like giggle; and finally, a questioning “Please?!” escapes their lips.
I say, “Thank You” and sign my sales slip, a little less cranky.
I’m curious…. Are you ever cranky about the lack of civility?
