Be Nice Mondays

It’s Be Nice Monday and here’s how it works:

A lot of people hate Mondays. Whether they didn’t get all their weekend stuff done, have a lousy job they’re going back to, argued with the kids over getting ready for school or their team lost the big Sunday game, there’s a lot of bad-tempered or just plain down people out there today. Be Nice Monday seeks to help those I-hate-Mondays folks by not being one of them.

There are lots of ways to do that. One might be letting someone pull in front of you while driving and not cussing them out. Another, compliment someone you normally wouldn’t, like the busboy in a restaurant or the stocker in a store. Help somebody carry stuff to or from their car. Give your bus or subway seat to somebody. Hold the door for the person behind you. Say thanks to someone doing their job. Share your snack with someone. You can buy the person behind you’s drink. Don’t argue back. Shovel the snow for your neighbor when you do yours. Smile and say g’morning.

I’m sure you can think of plenty of other ways to be nice on Mondays. If enough of us join in, maybe Monday won’t be quite such a bad day. I know it’ll help you feel better today. Share or keep what you do today to yourself – either way works fine.

    Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break.
    I love the knowledge you present here and can’t wait
    to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how fast your blog loaded
    on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G ..

    Anyhow, good blog!

    I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your
    blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like
    this one these days.

      Rocco, thanks! The theme is a free one from WordPress, Catch Flames. The layout is fairly easy to work with, only needing a little code poking here and there to fine-tune a couple of menus.

      Thanks too, re: the writing. It’s been a while since I’ve done any serious typing, it’s good to know not everything has disappeared over the decades.

    Valuable information. Fortunate me I discovered your web site unintentionally, and I
    am stunned why this coincidence did not happened earlier!
    I bookmarked it.

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours lately, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty price enough for me. Personally, if all
    webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the net will be a
    lot more useful than ever before.

      Thanks, Chrinstine. I’ve just gotten started, so the content will be moving into different categories over time.
