I really loved this quote I saw on Pinterest the other day, and it is really resonating with me today due to an incident while I was out yesterday with family at the zoo. Some of my family was in town so we all decide to take the kids to the Zoo for some end of summer fun. We were waiting in line to take the kids on the train they have and a lady was pushing her way through the line and cutting in front of my family and I. She wedge herself in the middle of our group not seeming to care that she was attempting to cut the line. If you know me I don’t take this kind of behavior lightly. I politely said excuse me we are all together in line this is our family and we are all trying to get on the train together.
This lady gave me the death look and told me to “chill the freak out”, what really lady? Your cutting in front of us and your telling us to chill out. So my response to her was ” I’m not trying to be rude but we were all here ahead of you and your cutting in line.” As the line started moving this woman took her two kids and completely cut our whole group in line and went ahead of us all and got on the train. We were all stunned at her blatant disregard to be polite and teach her children that kid of behavior.
So it just amazes me that we cannot be more kind and patient to one another, that our society continues to become more inconsiderate of manners and kindness. So today I hope you will pass this message along and let’s put a stop to this kind of behavior. You may be having a bad day or be frustrated but you have no idea what others are dealing with in their life either. So take that extra time to be kind to someone today and just a simple smile, or allowing someone to go a head of you in line because they only have two items. What a better day we would all have if we could practice patience and kindness.
So I hope you all have a beautiful day and that you get to make someone smile today.
