On This Day: National Common Courtesy Day

National Common Courtesy DayCould you at least have some common courtesy?  Don’t mind if we do! Today is National Common Courtesy Day.  There are several ways you can demonstrate common courtesy – hold the elevator for someone, stop to let a car pull out while driving, or even just a friendly “hello”/”goodbye” can go a long way.  Celebrate National Common Courtesy Day and pay it forward.  See if someone else will go out of their way to help a friend, colleague or total stranger.  You may be surprised what happens once you start an initiative!
