The sign said,
- 5 dollars for “a small coffee.”
- 3 dollars for “A small coffee, please.”
- 1.75 for “Hello, can I have a small coffee, please!”
I wonder if we added a comment about the weather would we get the coffee free?
It’s such a little thing to be polite, especially in these days of lockdown and separation.
Even your live-in family would appreciate a “Hi, did you have a good rest? Eggs will be ready in a moment.
Do you find yourself unexpectedly rude? Why is that? Heat? Impatience? Self- gratification?
Others have the same feelings but when two collide, it’s a nasty business. How would it be if you are the one who calms things down with a” Hi, how are you today? Can I have a small coffee please?”
These words I speak to you are not mere additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundation words, words to build a life on. (Luke 6:46-47b, MSG)
