    Good letter, and good advice, but we should all keep the idea of being
    courteous through the whole year, not just during the holiday season.
    We can’t change technology and the way things are, and we can’t do
    anything about rude people except to ignore them and not let them ruin
    our holiday spirit. But we can be friendly and polite in spite of it
    all. Maybe I’ve been lucky, but I haven’t seen the type of behavior
    described in this letter. In the stores where I’ve shopped, I’ve seen
    mostly smiling people and courteous shoppers and employees.
