I caught Scrubs last night and it got me thinking, do I require appreciation from those I feel I've helped? I'd like to think that I don't, but in all honesty, it does irk me when I help someone and they don't thank me - or thank someone else.

Example: A new student is lost at school. She has a room number, but doesn't know how to get there. I give her clear directions on the building location, which door to use, where the stairs are, which way to walk down the hallway, and she says, "Thanks." Then someone else adds, "It's the door on the left," and she smiles and fawns, "Oh thank you SO much! You're SUCH a big help!"

Are normal people not bothered by that kind of thing?

And on a completely different choo-choo of thought...
I've never understood pageant culture, but I do find it a teensy bit entertaining that one of the biggest human pageants is flanked closely in date by the two biggest dog pageants. I wonder if I'm the only one who sees any comparison in the way that both the ladies and the dogs are primped, shown, and judged? There is humor in that for me.

Yes, it irks me too when someone does not say thank you if you have done something to help them out. It is just good manners to me to say thank you.

I never really payed attention to the comparison of the pageant shows. Although I will admit I do like to watch the dog shows, just to see the beautiful dogs. Since I love dogs and hope to someday be a dog groomer, it is of interest to me.

Scrubs is a great show, witty, funny and usually with a point. I think I am one of those people that prefers gratification though I'm not sure I would go to the same lengths as JD just to get a thank you.

There's a pageantry system called Glamour Dolls.... they have a "subsidiary" called Glamour Dogs for those that are competing can compete their dogs as well.

On the Thank you note... I always try to show my appreciation to it's fullest. Sometimes I do slack. :(
