Later, I went back to the store and the...

    The Coffee Place

    I used to believe courtesy was a thing of the past. Very seldom have I encountered a courteous human being in this modern era of the so called Gen X.

Courtesy is meaningless if you let others mistreat you. Other values must take precedence in such case. This is not to say that you should stop being courteous.
Anon Imus, Los Angeles

De tudo o que recebemos, com certeza a cortesia deve ser passada adiante, porque todos precisa de todos, até quem nos odeia. From everything we receive, surely the courtesy should be passed on, because everyone needs everyone, even those who dislike us.
Anderson, Colatina - ES, Brasil

Mhir, Philippines

Courtesy is respect for other peoples feelings in everyday situations that get us all tense. Take a step back and realize that whatever the problem is, rudeness will not help solve it.
Donna, FL

All great values begin with respect and courtesy. Common courtesy seems to be the forgotten art in today's rush to the front of the line.
Scott, Dallas

Love the whole concept of this site and its will.
