Links to Love from Around the Web! The Value and Beauty of Honesty Edition


By: Maralee McKee      New? Start here!

Welcome to this week’s curation of manners links and more to love, gathered from around the web. This week’s curation has a theme: honesty.

  • Mike Rowe, TV host of the Discovery Channel show Dirtiest Jobs and star of the Viva paper-towels commercials made public a letter — a very honest letter — that a Girl Scout wrote to a friend of Mike’s asking the friend to consider buying some of her Girl Scout cookies. Mike reads the letter in this video that went viral. Honesty is endearing!


  • What happened after the Girl Scout’s letter went viral? For one thing, CBS News wanted to introduce her to all of us! Meet Charlotte, who asks, “If you’re not honest, then what are you?” She’s one sweet, smart cookie!


The Value and Beauty of Honesty

  • In this very short fictional story from India, we find out how one CEO used honesty to pick his replacement. It’s a modern fable.

About Maralee McKee

Maralee McKee is the founder of Manners Mentor. With her best-friend style, sense of humor, and knack for updating etiquette to meet our modern sensibilities, she has been referred to as "Sandra Bullock meets Emily Post!" Maralee shows you how to become the best version of yourself. No fluff. No pretense. Just you at your authentic best! The person you were always meant to be! Maralee is a native and life-long resident of Orlando. Before entering the etiquette arena, she worked in management and ministry. She's proud to be Kent's wife and Marc and Corbet's mom. She hates laundry, and loves quality tea, London, and Savannah, Southern cooking, dressing up and dressing down, and Miss Lilly the Wonder Sheltie. You can find her picture if you scroll to the footer of this page. Isn't she the cutest dog ever?!!! PS: Because everyone always asks her, "What's your etiquette pet peeve?" It's people who talk on their phones in public restrooms. The person on the other end of the phone must wonder, "What's that noise. It sounds, it couldn't be." Plus, everyone else in the bathroom is held hostage to a one-sided conversation usually shouted to try and cover up the noises. It would be comical if it weren't plain wrong on many levels. ;)
