Rude for you. Ok for me.

Have you ever left a message for someone who didn’t return your call/text/email and thought, “HoW RuDe!”?  I have to admit, this has happened to me on numerous occasions.  The main problem with this attitude is that I do the very same thing, but I don’t consider myself being rude or inconsiderate.  Instead, I’m “busy”, or I’ll eventually get around to responding.

The last time I was indignant with someone not returning my call I was reminded of my double standard and I vowed to make a change.  Very often all that is needed is a quick reply such as:

 “S o u n d s   G o o d”, “O k”, “=)”, or “I’ll get in touch with you when I know more.”

So that’s my my goal.  Hit that “RepLy” button immediately, return the call, or text an answer back and do as the GoLdeN RuLe says:

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
