To the joggers of Halifax...

Posted on Mon, Dec 12, 2011 at 12:00 PM

First of all, I would like to commend you for your diligence towards personal health. I've tried to take up jogging, and I just can't stick with it. But it seems that while you are out there keeping fit, you have forgotten some basic manners.

You see, I own a dog and therefore have to walk my dog on the same sidewalks you use, but you guys never seem to be abe to share them. I always make sure that my dog and I move out of your way, you never move out of ours. That is fine, I suppose as there are often herds of you and only two of us.

Often, I pull my dog off to the side, make her sit and we wait for hordes of you to jog on by. And here's what really gets my goat: No one says thank you. Not a single one of you has ever said thank you. Instead you keep chattering about your yoga classes and no carb diets and pass us by like you didn't even notice us. That is rude and inconsiderate.

While you may feel good about your level of personal fitness, you should feel bad about your lack of social graces, manners, and common courtesy. Don't worry though, getting into the habit of saying thank you is easier than getting into the habit of jogging. —Mrs. Manners
