Losing our Courtesy and Politeness?

April 17, 2008

I have been walking/running the railway trails and along South Shore of late and saddened by what appears to be Bermudians loss of courtesy and politeness (a trait of our culture has been consistently raved about by our tourists).  I make an effort to try and acknowledge other passing pedestrains or cyclists. Lately, I have received few returns and in some cases disapproving glances.  I remember growing up and walking the railway trails with my family and being told by parents to greet everyone that passes by.  I hope this isn’t an aspect of our Bermudian culture that falls by the waste side.
