Public Service Announcement - Say Excuse Me

In our recent travels I've noticed that many adults have apparently forgotten some things that I think they should know. For example, if my six year old daughter is standing in your way, staring at the back of her head will not make her move. But, if instead you simply say, excuse me? She will hear you and she will move.

And, if she doesn't hear you because she's busy being completely engrossed in being six years old? I am way more inclined to encourage her to move for you than I would be otherwise.

In conclusion, grownups, please say "excuse me."

You're welcome.

  1. I have noticed that common courtesy is somewhat lacking in the general public. Thank you for posting about this very thing. More people need to learn to use the three common courtesy phrases...please, thank you and excuse me.
