Friends may not be able to ‘cure’ you, but they can help heal you with just the warmth of their presence and the opening of their hearts to you. That’s real friendship.
People say you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. Truth is, you knew what you had, you just never thought you’d lose it.
There are only two things in life that I have to do; breathe and quit breathing. Everything else is optional. ~Loretta Moore

It is hard for me to comprehend how people and even businesses just can’t seem to understand how common courtesy goes a LONG way.
Common courtesy is SIMPLE aka NOT hard. It requires so little, yet people just can’t seem to do it. I don’t get it. When a restaurant screws up an order, TELL the customer what happened, apologize, and, in some cases, comp all or part of that meal…especially if it’s a group. If you’re an apartment complex, check your voicemail and respond back so that “someone” doesn’t have to go without hot water for 4 days. If you’re a friend and you can’t do something you said you were going to do, at least TELL someone you can’t do it rather than having them wait for you.
I could go on and on. I just don’t understand how common courtesy has gotten so lost in our society. Common courtesy may not change a situation, but it will at least lower the pissed-off factor. Ignoring people, not giving them the full story, etc. just give the impression that you don’t care and that’s not something anyone wants to feel, personally or in a business situation.
Funny and stupid are not the same thing. What you might think is funny is really just stupid, especially if you keep repeating the same tired joke/routine over and over again.
I hope life isn’t a big joke, because I don’t get it. ~Jack Handey
