When I saw this picture and the quote on it, I thought it was very apt for some people nowadays.
At the weekend just passed we went along to York National Railway Museum. We had a fantastic day but having 2 young children does make getting around harder especially as we have the pram and I found that there are a lot of ignorant people around.
Take getting the train for instance. We got on the train at Leeds station bound for York. This is only a 28 minutes journey. There were no seats left (even though we had paid for them) and suitcases were in all the storage spaces available meaning I had to put the pram down and leave near the door. Now, at this point I was expecting some nice person to offer one of us a seat, bearing in mind I was carrying Charlie, who is 17 month old, and Simon was holding Thomas, but no. No one even gave us the time of day.
I was truly astounded that not one person would allow us to sit down with our children. Where are the manners?
There seems to be a big lack of kindness in this World nowadays. I don't get how manners are not instilled in children at a young age. I will always bring my children up with the correct manner so they know how to treat people right. Just a shame that other people don't feel the same way.
Linking up to Wednesday Words from Crazy with Twins and wishing Emma a Happy Birthday too.
