Whatever Happened To
Posted On: 2009-01-02

It went the way of

"Thank you,"

"Excuse me,"

"Yes, sir. "

Do you know who just about killed all those phrases?

All of us.

We did not use them enough.

We now get,

"Huh?"

"What?"

"Gimme more. "

Mannerly responses are learned at home.

Rude, barbaric responses are also learned at home.

William of Wykeham, who was born in 1324 said,

"Manners maketh man. "

If we're so smart in the 20th century,

How come we're not as civilized as William was in the 14th century?

To the person who says, "Huh?", pass this message along.
