Midwestern Eastern European

The exuberant politeness of the Midwest has become so attached to me that I freak out people all over the resort with, “Have a beautiful day! Enjoy the rest of your stay!” People respond with, “Oh. Oh. Yes! You, too! Have a beautiful day! Yes!!”

After meeting a particularly grumpy Eastern European fellow yesterday, I’m even more eager to let people see that one can be from Eastern Europe and not be in a nasty mood all the time.
