An Open Letter To The People Who Don't Say Thank You

Dear People Who Don't say Thank You,

I have come across too many people like you recently. You know, the kind of people who refuse to thank others for kind gestures. Just two days ago, I paid for a girl's sandwich because she did not have enough money. Did she say thank you? No. Was I upset? Yes.

First of all, I know that your parents raised you better. And even if they didn't, saying thank you is a courtesy that one can learn. Secondly, why don't you thank others? Are you too entitled to say thank you? Are you too lazy to say thank you? Honestly, what is it?

Just in case someone hasn't informed you already, I am writing this to let you know that not saying thank you is rude, unacceptable, and extremely irritating. Not saying thank you shows a lack of compassion and appreciation for the people around you. I've noticed that you don't respect the people who are providing you with their services, the people who are going out of their way to help you, the people who are being kind towards you.

Below are examples of instances when you should thank others. Also included are the reactions when you refuse to say thank you:

1. When someone holds the door open for you.

2. When someone says "Bless You" after you sneeze and you refuse to say thank you.

3. When someone lets you into your lane and you do not acknowledge them.

4. When someone offers you a compliment and you never say thank you.

5. When someone gets you a present and you do not say thank you.

6. When you do not thank the waiter or the waitress or the cashier or the teacher or the bus driver.

7. When you simply refuse to acknowledge/thank someone for his or her kind gesture.

So, if you're not saying thank might want to start.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
