50 Things Every Young Lady Should Know…Week 2

Week 2….

SAY “THANK YOU”

YOU DO:
Say “thank you” anytime someone does something nice for you, no matter how well you know them.

YOU DON’T:
Think you don’t have to say “thank you’ to your mom, your dad, or your big sister because they are family and don’t count.

WHY:
Because family is where good manners begin, not where they end.

YOU DO:
Say “thank you” when a teacher compliments your drawing, or the piano teacher remarks kindly on your playing, even if you’e not happy with your drawing or your performance.

YOU DON’T:
Reply “it’s ugly!” or “I was terrible!” even if you could have done better.

WHY:
Because rejecting someone’s kind comments on your accomplishment implies they have no taste, and that’s insulting.

YOU DO:
Say “thank you” to the person who just made your strawberry-banana smoothie, handed you your change at the market, or gave you a program at hockey game.

YOU DON’T:
Assume that because people are “doing their jobs: they don’t deserve to be thanked for that particular interaction with you.

WHY:
Because it makes people feel good to know their efforts are appreciated, and why wouldn’t you want to make someone feel good?

  • A lady smiles and makes eye contact when she says “thank you.”
  • A lady says “thank you” even when the person she is thanking is on the other end of the phone.
  • A lady says “thank you” even if no one else has – or especially if no one else has done so.
