Have you ever wondered, as I have,
when asked by a store cashier,
“How are you today sir”,
if they are really being sincere?
Does their employer require they ask it,
or does it come from their heart?
Are they really concerned about you,
or are they just playing a part?
Does “Have a nice day” or “Excuse me”,
Have any meaning to you?
How about “please” or “thank you”,
or “sorry” or “how do you do”?
It all depends how it’s said, I guess.
Is it honest and said with conviction?
Myself, I think in most cases,
it borders on just being fiction.
So, next time you have occasion to use,
some type of polite expression,
make it be very heartfelt and true,
which conveys a real good impression!
