My summary is a bit of an overstatement, but it really isn't that far from the mark. In this MGM short, a busy and thoughtless boss ignores an employee who says 'good morning'--and this snub leads to a long, long series of calamities in this heavy-handed lesson on manners and how to treat your subservients. After the snub, the working shmoe goes home and growls at the family and makes a mess of his life--all because of one time that his boss doesn't return the greeting!! What a nut! Wouldn't it be funny if in a followup film someone forgets to say 'you're welcome' and this guy then goes off on a killing spree or if a waitress forgets a guy's coffee so he in turn invades Poland!! Talk about a heavy-handed message filled with propaganda! While the film tries to make a nice point, it really does seem a bit extreme and silly. See what you think and let me know if you get a chance. It's watchable and well made but all a bit trite.
