i feel like as time goes on manners and etiquette just seem to get worse. I don't know about you but having good manners was something that my sister & I were taught very early on & its something that has stayed with us our entire lives...I can proudly say I have wonderful manners & it drives me crazy that the kids nowadays just seem to lack it.
It got me thinking, there are just certain things in life no matter what we should always do, like say thank you or open a door for others....so i put together a small list of things I think no matter what are ALWAYS a good idea ----
Have a sober driver
Wash your hands after the bathroom
Cover your mouth when u cough
Replace the toilet paper roll if you finish it off
Hold the door open for someone
Eat your veggies
Say I love you
Have 'me' time
Respect your elders
Admit when you're wrong
Tip your server
Listen before you judge
what are some things you think people should always do?
Another thing that I think people should always do is be open to meeting new people, which is why blogging is so great because its a wonderful way for us to meet new people and learn about how others live....& today I have a girl who I have really enjoyed getting to know through blogging. I think what impresses me the most about her is how she teaches HIGH SCHOOL. I love kids don't get me wrong, but teaching high school is a whole other world. I really enjoy reading about her classes and what she does with her students. She's so full of life and I can tell she is so much fun to be around. So without further ado meet ---
I'm Bonnie and writing nonsense is my game. Sometimes I get in trouble for what I write, but that's just the way the cookie crumbles. Some call me Bonnarrhea and some call me Bon Bon Sexy Pants, but you can just call me Bonnie. Or Bon. Whatevs.
I write over at Life of Bon where life is always a party. The husband's name is Greg and I've been told I would be a fool for letting the internet Gods know my husband's name because now they can steal our identities and invade our home, GASP!
Therefore, to protect us from cyber devils and because it seems somehow hip I have named him Hubs. During the day I teach high school English to ungrateful seventeen year olds who have somehow completely stolen my heart. Ain't that always the way it is with ingrates?!?
I'm an avid reader, a hopeless romantic, and a terrible driver. (I once got two speeding tickets in twenty minutes- ouch!) I write mostly about failed attempts to yank underwear off of mannequins, awkward visits to gynecologists, and absurd things that come out of the mouths of the hoodlum students.
This is me with a lot of differnt hairstyles. Truly riveting, I know!
Bloggers or Vloggers: Bloggers! I'm all about quality writing.
Super Rich but Dumb or Super Smart & Poor. I'll take a combination of the two...
Wine or Vodka. Uh. Diet Coke? I'm not a drinker... us crazy Mormons!
Josh Dumel or Ben Affleck. Ben Affleck
Thong or Booty Shorts. Thong. (I am praying my students don't somehow find this and read it.)
Ellen or Oprah. Ellen, obvi!
Taylor Swift or Carrie Underwood Carrie Underwood. Before He Cheats should be the personal anthem of every American woman!
Pierced nose or pierced lip. Nose
Sex or foreplay. Who says I can't have both?
California or New York: Cali. Hello sun.
Sleep in PJS or Naked: Pjs all the way. I live in Utah. I would freeze if I slept in the nude!
Isn't she so fun?! And don't you just love her hair color collage!? A girl after my own heart...so because Bonnie is basically the coolest teacher ever, she is giving away a $25 Gift Card to FOREVER 21!!!! And right now, Forever 21 has such aaaamazing stuff....so lucky you
