From Empathy to Sympathy to Apathy

If I have been nothing but polite and kind to you, and yet nine times out of ten...okay...what the hell...FIVE times out of ten you are rude to me, I go from empathy to sympathy to apathy.  

Do not ask me for a favor which takes time out of my day and then never thank me, let alone acknowledge it...or me.  There comes a time when there might be reason but no excuse.  In fact, rarely is there an excuse.

And yet I will be polite. Ever greasing the sticky wheels of society am I.  Lubing life as I stumble along.

Courtesy is the one coin you can never have too much of or be stingy with.
