Well hello there, my wonderful friends!

I was reading some news articles online earlier today when I woke up, and then one of my Facebook memories popped up.

This happened in one of the largest fast-food chains worldwide - McDonald's (my favorite fast-food). Here, I wanted to get up and pop a dude in the mouth for being rude to the kid who brought his tray of food. Mind you, this is not the kid who put the order together.

A**hole Customer: "No ice, no ice! (pointing at his cup of water,) I said no ice!" Not so bad, it wasn't polite but bearable. The kid (crew) comes back with 2 cups of water no ice. As the kid is walking away, the a-hole customer barks out again!"Hey hey, tissue! Bring me a tissue, go on! Hurry! Go now!"...

That was where I felt the heat on my neck, I literally wanted to tell the guy to f*** himself. He is not God to be talking to anyone like that.

I just don't know what is wrong with a little bit of courtesy and consideration for the feelings of others. It's not that hard to step off your pedestal and talk to others the way you would like to be talked to, it really isn't.

Before that, he was wandering around his table, shot me a couple of hard glares down his nose at me. Didn't bother me at all but it was quite noticeable the guy thought he ran the world. Lol you wish, mtfr!

Call me old-fashioned. Call me immature. Take your pick! But in my younger days, if someone is disrespectful to you, then you beat some respect into them. Fortunately, it was not me he was talking to.

Sure, he asked for no ice! He was right in drawing attention to it! Sure, he should have been given napkins/tissue too! But good Lord Almighty! He could have been nice about it and simply pointed it out and asked for them in a decent way. Smh!

#Demanding #Bossy #Rudeness #Courtesy #Politeness #Inconsiderate

Another situation happened in Noise Cash where one user corrected someone else's grammar in a comment (in a bad taste) and again, that reached my boiling point. I am not going to go on the details, he must be here lmao. Peace!

I just told him/her, "It's not what you say, it's how you say it!"

The tone of your voice passes on importance alongside the words. A few words may sound neutral, yet can sound positive or negative depending on how you say them. So don't be an a**hole/jerk, alright?

Word choice rock! So does our way of conveying those words. The two of them convey something to the next person in the discussion. Once in a while, either may appear to be predominant in a specific setting, but mind you, listeners hear both.

When you say pleasant, kind, accommodating, polite, courteous, significant, esteem-adding words, how you say it raises its general mood. Of course, your goal and character run over more capably.

On the other hand, when you say a discourteous, brutal, pointless, useless, awful, not all that pleasant, mean thing, regardless of how pleasantly you say, it sounds discouraging.

People show their character (great, awful, revolting etc.) by how they treat others and by how they carry on with their lives. Along these lines, indeed, how you treat others will surely help characterize your character.

More often than not, how you say something is vital. That incorporates your whole self too - how you dress, how you hold yourself, how uproarious or delicate you are - everything has an effect. It all makes a huge difference.

Ending Thoughts And Words of the day:

  • Courtesy

(noun [ U or C ])

US  /ˈkɝː.t̬ə.si/ UK  /ˈkɜː.tə.si/

polite behavior, or a polite action or remark:

Example: You might get along better with your parents if you showed them some courtesy.

[ + to infinitive ] He could at least have had the courtesy to say sorry.

Example: The president welcomed her visitors with the usual courtesies.

  • Arrogance

noun [ U ]

US /ˈer.ə.ɡəns/ UK /ˈær.ə.ɡəns/

the quality of being unpleasantly proud and behaving as if you are more important than, or know more than, other people:

He has self-confidence that is sometimes seen as arrogance.

Source: Cambridge Dictionary

If you need to be heard and accepted, you will focus on how others see you. This isn't simple, and it's difficult. However, it tends to be done, and it will make you significantly more successful.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends. Get outside if you can and do something good for your mind, mood, heart, and soul. Be good humans, play nice, no biting and send some act of kindness somehow. Take good care of yourself too, because life changes in a heartbeat. Live it!

One love

Tama naman sis. Parang husband ko Lang lagi ko sinasabi sa kanya na he can say it in another way na hindi siya nakakasakit ng feelings ng iba.

Dahil sa article na ito pumasok na naman sa isipan ko ang nangyari sa lola at anak niya na binaril ng isang pulis sa ulo, naging viral ang video nito na kinuha ng kamag-anak nila at naipost sa social media.

Kumulo 'din ang dugo ko sa bidyong iyon, Isa sa mga tumatak sa mga nakakita sa bidyo ay ang pagsabi ng batang anak na kasama ng suspek na my father is a policeman -- *criminal.

Isa 'din yung halimbawa ng mga tao na may superiority complex at feeling ay nakakaangat at mas maotoridad sa kapwa niya.

Hindi ko talaga alam kung bakit may ganyang tao sa bayan natin gayong iisa uri lang naman tayo. Ah siguro, kasi ang alam ko ay bahagi tayo sa kingdom animalia, pinapairal ng mga taong yan ang pagka asal hay*p. Hindi ba yung mga katulad ng leon sa kagubatan eh mabangis at siga sa mga kapwa niyang hayop na mas mahina sa kanya.

Nakakalungkot lang talaga dahil wala din naman tayong magagawa sa iba. Kung meron man ay iyong nasa malapit lang sa atin, turuan ng maaayos na asal at mabuting modelo sa kanila pero sa iba talagang wala na tayo magagawa sa likas na pngit nilang ugali... 😕

Actually there are just people who thought they are privileged enough to act like that and its irritating, its annoying. And there are people no matter how you remind them to have courtesy or respect with other people they just don't follow and those are the kind of people that i want to put 6th feet below the ground without saying a word LOL

Those in the service industry do screw up. And you can snap at them, when warranted. But you can do that without shaming them in front of everyone else. However, when you need something, it s imperative to be polite, say please, and especially thank you. Yes, it is how you say it that has the most impact rather than what you say, so be careful when you open your mouth.

Tama ka talaga, it's not the word, it's the manner that you said that word, pasigaw, pa demanding.I can remember one experience, bago lang namatay si mama non, kakapanganak ko pa lang din.

Sumakay ako ng tricycle, 100 yong pera ko, pagbaba ko, sabi ng driver, wala akong barya, ba't hindi ka ngsabi na 100 pala pero mo. So yon, pumunta ako sa malapit na bakeshop, nanghiram ako ng pera. Nang inabot ko na, galit si driver, aburido sya kasi matagal, bat di sinabi. Ako may pinagdadaanan, as in umiyak talaga ako. Bumalik ako sa bakeshop, umiyak, sabi ng tindera"ok ka lang mam". Sabi ko, ok lng, hanggang sa kumalma ako.

Sana always nating piliin yong kindness kasi di natin alam na may pinagdadaanan pala yong tao tapos ang rude ng way ng pagkasabi natin.

You see, it's not WHAT you say that matters, but HOW you say it. As the late Maya Angelou said, “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” That's exactly the case here.
