Working a shift at the bar, I’m friendly although I’d rather be home.
Some people are sweet, charming or just plain pleasant,
while a few others, forget I’m here, it can seem.
No eye contact, simply “I want a beer”,
it’s ok, I don’t make it personal.
I guess it’s how they are
in their lives.
for schools to throw
some lessons in, on simple
pleasantries, common courtesy and
friendliness, when engaging with a fellow
human being, doing their work, making their living,
employed in a shop, hotel, railway station, library, restaurant, etc.
