Manners, Ladies

One of the things about moving to the country is that I spend lots of time driving through narrow village streets or country lanes. There are frequent stops to let oncoming traffic through. Inevitably, a larger vehicle causes frantic backing-up (when I usually end up in the hedge!).

All this manoevering is generally done with good humour. A little wave of thanks is exchanged – and everyone drives on with a smile on their faces. Just occasionally, there is no wave, no smile – no acknowledgement that I’ve stopped to let someone pass. Invariably, these people are women. As a woman myself, I find that galling. We’re all busy – we all have lots going on in our lives – but a second of courtesy costs nothing. Come on ladies, where are your manners?
