Acknowledging a 'Good Morning'.

by Bonnie

Good Morning Miss Practical Manners,

My question is about speaking Good Morning at the work place. I am always here first and open shop. My office is secluded from the rest of the large complex for I am the weighmaster/customer service clerk and have a separate office with the scale. Should I always leave my space to say good morning to the others, or should they come to me? 9 out of 10 I am the one to come forth. I am feeling a tad unimportant to my employers and co-workers.

Thank you for your answer in advance.

B Smith

Dear Bonnie,

This is indeed an interesting question. I think good manners would guide us into a 50/50 solution. Everyone should make an effort to greet one another. Having said that, good manners cannot be forced on folks. The others may not think about it as much as you do because they are not isolated. I say do what feel comfortable and remain friendly with everyone. At least you will be displaying proper practical manners!
