Excuse me…Allow me
Excuse me, pardon me, or please allow me; simple words of courtesy or propriety gone lost.
I guess I’m showing my age; I remember those times when these terms and courteousness were expected.
Rather than being the exceptions that are so commonplace today.
This loss of civility is a curious thing; when did showing the proper respect become so difficult to understand?
Then again, I guess they went the way of a properly pronounced word.
Excuse me if you would and allow me this little babble.
It’s an old habit of mine and is so very difficult to change.
But a proper hello and a meaningful goodbye are still proper and simple and still serve me well.
It’s a good thing I don’t mind showing my age.
