Pardon Day – September 8th
Pardon Day is a day to remember that etiquette and courtesy are essential elements of a successful day. With the hustle and bustle of our busy days, don’t even try to deny that it’s somewhat of a lost art.
Bear with me while I try to prove to myself that my manners haven’t completely packed their bags and abandoned me. I’m taking this opportunity to beg your pardon on three situations where I’ve committed a wrongdoing or violation of proper adult behavior.
Dear yoga lady, please pardon me and my retched glare and possible inappropriate gesture to you after you went around me and took my parking spot while you knew I was waiting for it first. Namaste.
Please forgive me for losing my temper on the sweet and patient customer service representative who was calmly trying to help me find a missing transaction that I desperately needed a receipt for but come to find I called the wrong bank and was looking in the wrong account. Talk about displaced anger. I should glue my tail between my legs.
Pardon me, [friend who shall remain unnamed], for sending your call to voicemail and replying with a text that I was out of town just to read your text back to me saying you just passed me walking down the street. I was “hangry” and on my way to the grocery store and wasn’t feeling social.
Well, now that the weight has been lifted, I hope you’ll like me more for my humble apologies and find me to be polite and decent. What do you want to pardon yourself for?
Happy Pardon Day!
