The Nickels and Dimes of Social Interactions

The importance of saying please and thank you

With the surge in shortened communications, such as Twitter and text messaging, there seems to be a loss in the nickels and dimes of social interactions. Those small but valuable tokens are the words “please” and “thank you.” I know, you only have 140 to 160 characters to get your point across. I know you’re busy and moving quickly. Just remember, everytime you choose to have an interaction with a person, be sure to drop them a nickel or a dime. Just like compound interest at the bank, those nickels and dimes turn into dollars later.
