It's not that I don't notice people being inconsiderate during other times of the year, but the holidays for some reason seem to bring out the worst in people or so it seems. Maybe my patience is just a little lower during this time of the year. Whatever the reason I just can't help but notice the new member of the aerobics class who acts like she owns the place with her 6 foot frame crowding the rest of us to the outskirts of the room. Or the psychoicness of the need to claim parking spaces 6 months in advance. Or the simple thoughtlessness of not picking up after yourself....even though you think "eh someone else will do it." Yes someone else will do it but they shouldn't HAVE to do it. What's wrong with you people...get over yourself and be kinder damnit....

And if you don't remember here's a reminder from "The Little Pink Book of Ettiquette":

1. Focus on Others. It's not about you.
2. Think before you act
3. Think before you speak
4. Wait your turn
5. Listen when others speak
6. Pick up after yourself.
7. Assist those in need
8. Respect people who are different from you
9. Be patient and kind
10. Smile

Now I know even myself am no champion of these 10 things...but there is nothing wrong with constantly trying....
