The twins really like elevators, they like to push the button to call the elevator, they like pushing the button for our particular floor and they love the ride.
We've been doing a lot of elevator riding lately because of this and it's been the perfect opportunity to continue to teach them about manners and what proper protocol is when riding an elevator. I've been teaching them the importance of waiting until all of the passengers step off the elevator before we step on.
It's been a slight challenge for them because they are 4 and they are so eager to ride in the elevator. They learn quickly though.
Unlike some people.
Today while at the doctors office with my mom we had approached our floor and were ready to get off of the elevator. My mom and I each grabbed a child's hand and let them know we'd reached our floor.
The doors opened and as we attempted to step off we were ambushed by a lady who was more than old enough to know better.
She literally bumped in to us and failed to say "Excuse me" or "sorry" or even "Oops"
My mom, never one to bite her tongue, said to me rather loudly " Wow, some people can really be rude".
"Yes, I noticed" I said
The woman was oblivious.
It floors me sometimes that people can be such asses and fail to realize it. I'm not perfect but when I've done something particularly ass-like I am usually quick to recognize and apologize and I would certainly hope I wouldn't bump in to two children because I feel like whatever I'm doing is so important that decency and common courtesy fly out the window.
I guess Ms. Rude be-atch's parent's must have missed that section in the parenting handbook( You know the one that states its your responsibility to make sure your children are raised to be polite and well mannered).
Alright fine, two can play at that game.
Since Ms. RB has no idea what good manners are, I guess there shouldn't be any problem with my tripping her rude ass next time.
