REMEMBERING THAT THERE ARE NICE PEOPLE, TOO
Posted on Apr 23 2010 by Greg
Sometimes you get so caught up with rishing from task to task, meeting to meeting, deadline to deadline, standing in lines, waiting for lights to change and otherwise racing against the day that you forget that not everyone is rude, selfish and inconsiderate -- quite the opposite.
Today I was running late for an appointment this morning and had not had breakfast so I stopped at McD's for a burrito and of course there was a line and of course I had forgotten change so I left the line to go back to the car and a little old lady got my place in line.
When I got back I called my appointment to say I would be late and the little lady heard me and asked me to step ahead of her. "After all," she said, "You had to go back to your car."
I told her that her, when people do nice things like that, it reminds me that there are nice people who think of others. She smiled shyly. What a lovely woman.
My Aunt Rosie was wrong about the world in general, but then she was wrong about a lot of things. She was a hoot at times, though.
