Bernstein With a Twist
This is a weekly program with commentary on current issues.
Peggy Minor wrote me the kindest note:
“Thank you for choosing to read my e-mail. I know you have many choices of e-mails and I appreciate that you chose mine.”
I felt so good about choosing to read Peggy’s e-mail that I just kept reading: “I get thanked even when I have no choice, as in a recent encounter with the Gas Co. I called to have an appliance checked and was thanked profusely for choosing The Gas Company. There is no other choice for gas needs in this area!”
“In this day of exaggerated and mandated by the boss politeness, don’t you think this whole thing has gone too far?”
I’d like to thank Peggy for choosing to raise this subject because, now that she mentions it, we do seem to be a chronically grateful and polite people.
