I want to wish a Happy Holiday Season to everyone! That means what ever color, race, religion you are. That means to the cooks, the maids, the CEO’s, the single parent, the kids EVERYONE! Yes I usually say Merry Christmas but I mean no offence and I don’t think most people do it is just what many of us grew up with. I believe in doing the right thing always but I think this time of year is especially important to be nice to everyone. And that means to the clerks in the stores with the long lines and the crowds. Remember they are doing their job and it is rough on them and when you get up to that counter and start yelling and complaining because your frustrated how do you think they feel! Your server at the coffee shop is probably overwhelmed with the sudden rushes of people demanding coffee now so they can rush out to get gifts to spread the Xmas cheer while they bully their way through the stores.
How about the postmen and women and the UPS and Fed-Ex people, it isn’t their fault the package is late. It isn’t their fault the roads are snowy or icy or crowded and they didn’t get to your house right at 1 pm or whatever. How do you think they feel? Maybe they have problems of their own and maybe they are trying to be nice to you and hide what they are going through.
During the holidays people who have problems suffer more. Their problems seem worse. Because the holidays are supposed to be good and happy and they aren’t. So why can’t we all be nice to each other. If everyone just smiled and used basic manners saying Thank You and Please, and holding our impatience in someone’s day could be made so much better. After all isn’t that what the Holidays are about???? Smiles and good feelings??? I think so. Nothing else should matter except helping everyone enjoy them.
I have watched people rip through a store clerk over nothing. Rudeness and bad manners are not acceptable to me at any time but during the Holidays when so many have so little and are so sad it is just wrong.
So I put out a challenge to everyone. Please be kind to the clerks, the cleaners, the stock clerks, the people working in the restaurants, the other shoppers, to every color and race and your holiday will be better and so well theirs. Is it so hard really to put on a smile?? If it is then maybe you need to be smiled at. And maybe someone will make your day by a smile and a kind word. If we all try maybe for this short time we could have Peace and Love and Joy for everyone. Everyone deserves that. Don’t forget the Police and Fireman , and Service Men and Women too, and all the people who are their for us always.
I want to Personally Thank all the clerks and workers out their that have to work in all this commotion. I appreciate all your work and personally I have gotten many smiles and good service from you all.
I wish for you all a wonderful Holiday full of Joy, Love, Peace and lots and lots of laughter!
