Maybe it is people's growing sense of entitlement that makes them think nothing of demanding something of someone else without the courtesy of a please or a thank you.
Maybe it is the fact that so many babies are having babies and they have no understanding of etiquette or treating their fellow humans with respect.
Maybe people have forgotten just how simple it is to say these words.
Maybe people just don't give a shit anymore.
Whatever the case or cause, I find it unbearably sad that these words are dying out.
It takes so little effort to be courteous.
