Let me begin by asking you this:
Is it safe to assume that as children our parents teach us basic dos and dont's necessary to keep us safe and considerate, AND encourage the skill of being polite? (A skill a lot of folks have to take refresher courses in throughout adulthood. Some stick, some don't)

~ Don't stare
~ Say please and thank you
~ Keep your hands to yourself
~ Don't butt in front of someone in line
~ Pick up after yourself
To this brief list I must add something that doesn't so much annoy me but confounds me, and that is when people do not return something from whence they found it. I'm not talking about at home, (although not being able to find some you know you put in a certain place can also be provoking), but in the public venue.

This is her, that cashier, about 53 years ago. The look was just in its infancy. She's since
How's that for rationalizing?!
Any annoyances of your own? No limitations on how many!
