Sitting at the pizza restaurant with the Foxes the other week in Singapore, somehow our conversation led into being polite and having manners. Lucas was asking why you need to be polite all the time, and I answered him because it's nice to be around polite people.
I took the example of when one of his class mates had met Mormor and Morfar at school one day at pick-up, he stretched out his little hand and said:
-"Hello, I'm George. Nice to meet you".
Very polite - and very nice! Especially from an 8-year old!
Lucas sighed and said:
-"Ah George, well he's English. Why does the English have to be such gentlemen all the time?"
Nathan then said:
-"Well, Jason is English, and he just farted!"
Lucas responded, without even looking up from the iPad game he was playing:
-"Jason is just too much rock n' roll".
We all had a huge giggle about that and do I have to add that the comment made Jason's... week? :)
