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.

 

Bear
