To the editor:
I am a 55-year-old staff member here at USU. I work in Old Main. I have seen a lot in my past years, but this one is getting worse and worse. Sometimes as I am walking the halls or going out the door, I have been shoved, almost tripped and fell down stairs, bumped against the wall and more. What happened to manners? Not one single person who has done this has apologized or seen if I was OK. Also, my "favorite" is when they just walk out the door and let it slam in someone's face who may be behind them. What happened to glancing behind you and pausing for just a moment and holding it so they can then hold it for someone behind them, etc.? I hold the door for anyone; male, female, all people. And if I pause for even more than a moment to hold the door, could you possibly say a quick "thanks?" It truly saddens me that there is very little respect anymore, and here is my biggest pet peeve. Those children who carve all kinds of obscenities on the elevator doors. The Facilities department has painted and painted those doors and they just keep thinking we love their art work. They also have stated that this is the worst they have ever seen. You act like junior high school, when the immature would giggle, snicker during the sex-ed classes. Well personally, this message is for you: Go home, save your parents money, because apparently you aren’t ready for the “adult” school.
