It Really Should Be Uncommon Courtesy At Worst, Not RARE!

Legends to the contrary aside, “common” courtesy has never really been that common, but even so I find it disheartening when a simple gesture is met with amazement.

Case in point, recently I had rented a storage facility for a few months, and when I was done with it, I walked into the facility’s office and said, “Okay, I think I’m done. The unit is empty, has been swept, and the lock is off and in my car. Do I need to do anything else?”

There was a moment of stunned silence before the manager responded, “Oh, you absolute diamond!”
