Michael Meets the So-wi-bam
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     When Michael met the So-wi-bam, he really got a shock. The So-wi-bam burst in the door and didn't even knock.
 
2     "How rude," said Mike, "Please ring the bell or knock before you come."
 
3     The So-wi-bam sat down and said, "Got ice cream? I want some!"
 
4     Mike could not believe his eyes, or what his ears had heard. What kind of person walks right in without a knock or word?
 
5     "I am a So-wi-bam," he said. "I do not need to be polite. I'll throw a tantrum when I want, and I am always right. Someone-With-Bad-Manners is my official name, but you can call me So-wi-bam, to me it's all the same."
 
6     Mike closed the door and came right back so he could say hello. The So-wi-bam sat on the floor and fiddled with his toe.
 
7     Mike offered him a chair and spoke in gentle tones, "You should not do these kinds of things in other people's homes."
 
8     The So-wi-bam let out a belch and grabbed a piece of cheese.
 
9     Mike said politely, "When you want to eat say, 'May I?' Then say, 'Please.' Say, 'Thank you,' when you're finished, then ask to be excused. You cannot be polite unless these words are used."
