- …says "Hi" to your teachers when you see them in the hallway.

- …grabs as many soccer balls as you can and puts them in the bag when your coach calls an end to practice.
- …picks up the soda can on campus and throws it away.
- …sticks up for the social outcast at school.
- …drives your friends home when they've had too much to drink.
- …remembers your parents' birthdays.
- …tells your teacher when you're really enjoying the class.
