The Power of Simple Courtesy

"Never underestimate the power of simple courtesy.

Your courtesy may not be returned or remembered,

but discourtesy will."

Princess Jackson-Smith, writer

    

As I see it. . . . . . . .

The power of simple courtesy  

The simple act of courtesy is in having good manners and treating people with courteousness.  

Courtesy is act of doing for others without seeking a reward or recognition. Being courteous can be one of the most fulfilling moments in a person's life for both the giver and receiver.    

The power of the act of simple courtesy can brighten a person's day, make a person smile, and form a lasting relationship. The cost of being courteous is being polite and the rewards are endless. Being courteous is a personal choice of being a good person and making the people you meet feel good about meeting you.

I get compliments all the time from people about the manners of my five year old.  I think that's sad.  Since when are things like "please", "thank you" and "excuse me", optional?  My 16 month old son already knows how to say thank you.  I hope if my children learn anything from me, it's respect for others and being courteous counts!  Great reminders of how simple a smile or hello can be.

One thing I have noticed and actually can't believe how prevalent it is in our society is the term "no problem".  I will say thank you and I hear from people in the service industry, friends, co-workers and other agents say "no problem". Was it a problem to begin with?!  Starting to be a pet peeve :)

Common courtesy is not so common anymore!  Please, thank you and You're Welcome seem to be in disuse.
