staircase politeness: be nice at the top and the bottom
January 2, 2011Posted by on
They don’t mind if a person falls up them or falls down them. Openminded. Flexible. That’s nice. While this is made much easier by the person wearing socks, it doesn’t hinder their willingness to allow a person the chance to fly through the air. And, if you think about it, that’s the basis for all polite behavior…Being open to all preferences and situations.
But, know this: if you top off “being openminded” with a snarky remark or roll of the eyes, you’ve ruined the moment. Take this staircase…if you should fall up them, you will find a quiet and dark landing at the top where you can discreetly make sure your big toe isn’t broken. But, if you should fall down them, you will find yourself faced with this little smarty-pants:
I appreciate the chance to get down quicker than I could have on my own, but come on.
The next time I find myself falling down rather than up (yes, it’s that often), I’m aiming my size 9’s for those red lips.
