Please and Thank You

It is amazing
How far one can go
In life
With just these two saying
Please and Thank You
Everyone says things like
Such a gentleman
Your parents did a fine job
Even knowing this
Nothing more than common courtesy
I thrive on it
Like a wonderful food
Another addiction
An obsession
I will never get enough
I bag my own groceries
Have exact change prepared
Help whenever I can
Hold open doors
Volunteer to do chores
Smile at strangers
But then again
When I'm in a car
Get out of my way
Before I give you the finger
