Miss Manners Would Cringe
Does anyone R.S.V.P. or write a proper thank you note besides me anymore? I live in an arm-pit of a town, and yet the beautiful young lady next door wrote one of the nicest thank you notes I have ever read. She wrote it in appreciation for a graduation present we gave her.
Thankfully, my parents taught me to write thank you notes. I can’t remember if they held the gifts I received “hostage” until I wrote them, or food and water.
When my oldest daughter interviewed at Texas A&M University for vet school, she was interviewed by a panel of doctors. She was forthright and respectful and wrote every doctor on the panel a thank you note for the interview afterwards. She got in on the first try; this is unheard of. There are only 28 veterinarian schools in the country and A&M is one of the top ones; it is literally harder to get into vet school than medical school.
I made all three of our girls endure both manners classes AND defensive driving. At least the defensive driving was a comedy driving school and came with a lunch! I will rest assured knowing I have done everything I can do to ensure their safety AND to not order “RANCH” dressing in a high-end restaurant ha ha!
Well there’s a dad who likes good clean fun, which I’m ALL about. His alter-ego is a character named “Bat Dad”. He has four kids and lives in Atlanta; talk about embarrassing your kids! “Bad Dad” teaches manners, safety and probably has more fun wearing the tight pants than he should ha ha!
