Monday Judgements and Warnings

I know this is somewhere toward the beginning of Chapter Two in your How To Be a Cordial Human Being manual that you should have received when you were born but I think it bears mentioning again that:

If you are behind an old person in line at the grocery store and that old, frail person is having trouble figuring out how to get their god forsaken ATM card through the little ATM thing and they, for the life of them, fall short in getting positive results in answering all the questions about:
AMOUNT OK? NO? YES? HOPEFULLY?
CASH BACK? YES? NO? MAYBE? NO IDEA?
WHAT IS THE TOTAL AMOUNT? HUH? BEATS ME? PROBABLY?

You should be patient and/or offer your kind help and do your best to settle the rest of the beasts in line behind you that have it our for the old person and in that way you’ll seal the deal the universe has with you that you aren’t a putz of a person.

Helpfully Yours,

  1. Who wouldn’t be nice to an old person under any circumstance?
    Don’t even tell me that those people exist. Don’t!

  2. Love it! I’m sending it to my wife’s daughter who has this attitude of “O.K. I’m on the verge of 60, I don’t have much time left and I’m tired of all this f—–g around!” Don’t know if it will help but one can but try.

  3. Right on! I waited with a lady in her wheelchair while her husband went and got his car at the mall. Like how hard was that? Good karma pays off.

  4. Annie says:

    “Meg @ Members Lounge” has been expertly and properly brought up to honor/help those in society who need help. Bless and keep her always.

  5. Old people are so cute. I’d much rather help them figure out the debit card thing than watch them take ten minutes to write a check for the exact amount to the grocery store.
