So last week I was in Yokohama. Very enjoyable. Time came to leave. It is very early in the morning as we head for the airport.
Cab to the bus station which looks like at 5 star hotel. We get to the bus stop and there is a young man in a uniform and white gloves. He greets us elaborately and shows us where to stand. The bus arrives exactly on time. The young man loads my companion’s bag into the hold of the bus smiling and expresses his hope that our journey goes well. He does the same for everyone traveling to the airport.
So how to write this? I like the fact that people help. I like the fact that no one tries to push in. I like the fact that no one is shouting. I like the fact that the young man with white gloves has no chip on his shoulder. I like courtesy.
When did Europe loose this? Did Europe ever have it?
