Has anyone seen, Please? You know, to please or not to please, that is the question. Whether it is pleasurable to please, or polite to say please, is becoming a mystery to people, or at least that's what is seems to me as I pace through this unconscious society. Just another word that's lost it's meaning, and status in our vocabulary. I can still hear Mom saying, "What's the magic word?" Or maybe that's what the techno world is turning humans into. Rude, insensitive, self-motivated individuals, who think that because they have the world at their fingertips and don't have to respond in a human fashion as they thumb their smart phones, suddenly come back to their reality, where all manners are dissolved. Trust me, these ill-fated barbarians who have misplaced all sense of politeness, need to wake up, People complain left and right how awful the state of our existence is in, and yet who can say that they make a conscious effort to be nice to people? Not many, I believe. So, please, I implore you, practice a little magic today, and say the word, please!
PLEASE-To afford or give pleasure or satisfaction. Like, wish. To have the kindness. According to Webster's.
So, let's go out and show some simple kindness and see how we can change the world. PLEASE!
