On my morning walk I saw a local lad eating a sandwich on his way to school. With the last satisfying bite he was left with the triangular plastic in hand ..... I hadn't even finished the thought of "bet that ends up on the grass verge" when he stopped, crossed the road, walked back 20 odd meters to place it in the bin. Shame on me, good on him and two thumbs up to his parents !
Love it. I frequently notice just how polite and well-mannered most young people are.
Yep, especially the Dawlish ones. More often than not as i walk up behind the Exeter Inn to Not long got off the train from Paignton, where a young teenager with a cigarette behind his ear offered to help us off with the grand daughters pram. And he had his bike with him to get off with too!! So if your 14 year old recently got home stinking off smoke ...... give him a break, and feel proud of your son !! So for all the negative posts I read here about local stuff, here's a hearty two thumbs up to all the teenagers I come across and a hearty thank you to the parents who have raised them!!! (=|:-D
I agree. We were very impressed with the youngsters of Dawlish when we first moved here 6 years ago, they are polite and cheerful. One of our first experiences of Dawlish was of a chatty, smiling teenager serving us in a shop - it gave us an excellent first impression of the town.
Ooops, not sure what happened to part of my post, but the start should have read ...... "Exeter Inn to Lanherne, if there are any teenagers congregating there (all be it for a sly cigarette) they are always so polite, move to one side to let us through, say hello and/or assist with the grand daughters pram" .......
mist youngsters in dawlish have been brought upto have morals and respect its nice to hear praise them for once
