Please – Thank You – Hello – Goodbye. Is it so difficult to say these little treats?
Manners are fading and it is a shame. A simple thank you can move mountains. A humble hello makes a world of difference. A gracious please makes pleasure in the activity and a special goodbye makes the heart warm for the contact.
My dad use to say: always remember these four manners and from it you will always feel good about yourself. And it is true. I never leave a restaurant without saying thank you and goodbye. I always announce hello when I enter a place and when asking for anything it is always accompanied by a please.
So the next time you are out and about don’t forget the Big Four and then feel the good it gives out but more importantly the affect it has on the people who receive it.
