Why so rude at the workplace?
I felt as though I was the only one until I read your article.
Recently, I was in a rude situation at a doctor's office with the receptionist. I have never been addressed "name and address" by a receptionist as greeting for a doctor's office. There was no greeting, perhaps, "Hello, how are you doing today?"
I would like to think that there would be smiling faces and joyful voices to help ease the patient's pain. I have been given the impression that no one cares about their attitude toward the next person any more as long as the day is almost over or if it is almost break time.
It goes beyond Southern Hospitality these days. Whatever happened to finding a job that you love and enjoy? Rude people not only need to think about politeness but how short life is.
It is simply breathtaking, second by second, using so much energy to be angry when you should want to work on living an everlasting life. It never hurts anyone to smile, at least I hope not. I do it all the time and it definitely makes me feel good.
Although my mother raised me to say "yes ma'am" and "no sir," I don't hesitate to say it to any random individual because it is all out of respect.
There is an old saying that I have always heard and live by is "Respect those that respect you."
About the Galleria and Manchester Village
Here are my observations about the Manchester Village and Galleria shopping centers.
• Galleria area:
1. Trash on the road since the shopping center has opened the road to the Galleria, Hobby Lobby and Kohl's shopping center.
2. Drivers speed up on our road thinking it is Interstate 77 and the speed is 60 mph.
3. This is a small road, and we are lucky that two cars can pass on this road. Then we have 18 wheelers coming down this road to deliver to the shopping centers.
4. About 85 percent of the drivers will not stop for the stop sign.
• Manchester Village area:
1. Thanks for the new turn signals at the Springsteen intersection with Dave Lyle Boulevard.
2. When will they do that down at the other intersections?
3. As for the intersection at Books-a-Million, people think that they don't have to stop for that stop sign, so the drivers on Tinsley Way have to be careful so that they will not get hit when they can go.
Let's speak out on behalf of animals
Hopefully, you will put an article in your paper concerning these poor animals going back to this horrific situation. To put them in cages is not any better than having them on logging chains. You have the power to get the word out and do the right thing for these poor animals
