Common Courtesy

One thing that never seems to go out of style is being courteous to all those you meet. Saying please and thank you, holding doors open for others, and considering the feelings of those you know and meet are things that we should do daily but on March 21 a day has been set aside for common courtesy. I always tell my children that they can attract more positive attention and make friends by being nice and courteous. If everyone was nice the world would be a much better place full of friendship. 

A few things that you can do to be part of the National Courteous day:
  • Say hello to everyone with a smile
  • Hold the door open for the next person
  • If people around you are trying to hear something, such as a movie, etc, be quite.  If you must speak, keep your voice down.
  • If you have extra cookies or cupcakes, share some with your neighbors
  • If you ride the train, subway or bus, offer to give your seat to an elderly or handicapped or pregnant person
  • Don’t forget to say Please and  Thank You, especially to servers who are waiting on you
  • Be considerate of those around you, if you are able, help someone in need, such as helping someone load groceries to their car, or helping an elderly person cross the street

  •  Barney shares with children how to treat each other in the song "Please and Thank You"

    It doesn't cost a dime to be courteous, and the payback you get is fantastic.  Instead of having a Common Courtesy Day, I think we should make it a Common Courtesy Year, or even a Common Courtesy Life!
