04/13/2005 Entry: "My Day in Augusta"

So after a day of tradeshow yesterday, today I spent another five hours on my feet "meeting" with with legislators, the soon to be public utilities commisioner, the governor, and George Mitchell. (Well, George walked by.)

This one person asked if they could have a mousepad. I told them of course they could. They said thank you. I said you're welcome.

"Who taught you to say that?" they asked.
"What?" I asked. (It was a little noisy.)
"Who taught you to say 'You're welcome'?"
"I guess my folks did."
"They're good people," he said. "You can always tell when a politician has something to hide. They never say 'You're Welcome.' They always say 'No, thank you.' You watch, and see how many people say 'You're Welcome.' Almost no one says it anymore."

Keep your ears open, and see what you find. Then, let me know.
