    I live in a large apartment complex. This morning as I was getting my laundry out of the dryer, there was one man there. After I got the laundry out, I cleaned out the lint screen into the trash, as usual. The man looked at me and said "thank you." I usually have to clean the lint screen before I dry my clothes (dryer lint is extremely flammable), and apparently so does he. Still, it was surprising to have someone thank me for doing such an ordinary thing.

    Just two words - they make such a difference.

    Unfortunately, in this generation common courtesies aren't always taught to young children at home. This event speaks volumes about the "one man there" in the laundry, your parents and you. Civility matters; nice thread. Thanks.
