What is with people today?
People are invited to parties and don't RSVP even on an Evite.
They take their kids to restaurants and let them run all over the place.
They don't bring a hostess gift to a dinner party....OY VEY!
Come on people! We have to get it together! And whether you like it or not ladies, it is up to us because women carry the torch of decorum and manners. That's just the facts.
How have things gotten so bad? Remember as Dolly Parton says in Steel Magnolias:
"What separates us from animals is our ability to accessorize...."
Can we be civilized please?
The thing that irritates me the most is lack of thank you notes. People buy you a gift, or your children a gift and you don't have the time to write a note? Really? But you're all caught up on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!
Maybe we should just start simple. Tell someone, lots of people, thank you. The guy who opens the door for you (it happens) thank you. Someone at work gets you out of hot water? Thank you. You're friend talks you off the ledge (you know who you are (JEM), thank you. A simple thank you will do.
Then get some good stationery and write a bunch of thank you notes.
Phew, I'm done with my rant now...
Totally Terrific Tunics!!
