A Lesson In Manners - Observations From A Five Year Old Photographer


gemma and i walk to and from school every day and she made a great observation which she thought she would share through photos...  no one asks nicely to no get junk mail.  



no please.



no thank you.




and some are down right grumpy about it.  this one warns that the sender will incur the cost of returning all the advertising and promotional materials.



as we walked along, gemma wondered out loud if the post man ever just gave them junk mail anyway because they did not have any manners.  she reckoned that she would to teach them a lesson.

Cute! She's right though. There are no "pleases" or "thank yous" on those signs.

maybe, you could write your observations down and deliver your thoughts to all the grumpy owners of the mail boxes?

Do you think a "no junk mail please" sign would work in the states? I think the postal worker would get in trouble for not delivering it!

Precisely why I'm diligently working on this... here in the states... http://www.mediawisekids.blogspot.com/

So that kiddos your sweet Gemma is growing up with with won't turn out to be grumpy old folks like your neighbors. (smiles)

Interestingly, seems there is a great source for my endeavor... there, at http://bluyonder.wordpress.com/

Any insights either of you ladies have, would be most appreciated. But be warned, they will be shared... :)

You know Amber, a "please" may not do anything, but it sure would be nice.
