People, and how to deal with them
No, I don’t suddenly have fabulous insight into how to deal with people. But I did find some magazines from the 1950’s that may shed light on this.
I mentioned the other day that we went to some antique shops in Pendleton, Oregon. I approach antiquing like my photography, give me something different. So when I saw these, I had to have them. There were actually about 15 of these, but I chose 5 that I liked the best. They are 8 x 10 only have 8 pages, and were published bi-weekly.
But oh the wise advice of the 50’s. I am going to share one magazine with you, and give you some excerpts for the next 5 weeks.
These cracked me up, but at the same time, I thought…..if people still had these values and ideals, we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in as a society.
Along with advice on how to deal with people, there is a photo section in each one. I only hope there are no babies in those carriages. LOL
There is an article on making your job important, instead of the other way around. And also another on using proper grammar to make an impression. Both valuable, and still applicable today.
Then we have the Wit and Wisdom section.
The toughest problems some kids face is that of learning good manners without seeing any.
The man who remembers what he was taught at his mothers knee, was probably bent over it at the time.
No man goes before his time, unless the boss has left early.
I hope you enjoyed this little walk into another era. I will share some more next week.
