This isn’t the post I planned to write and publish today but having observed people and their behaviours over the last couple of days I decided to write this one instead.
Usually people are courteous to each other, on most levels. Occasionally I see people being off hand or rude to others, but I tend to think that they are idiots and the thought leaves my head. Continue reading
