She was having a bad day, and I will admit that I have been in her shoes before. When absolutely everything that could go wrong DID go wrong. The coffee burned my tongue, the toaster fried my toast, I got a run in my tights, the car wouldn’t start, the gas station was out of unleaded, there were two accidents on the way to work, my favorite parking spot was taken…the list can just go on and on and on! Why does this happen in life to us sometimes? When this woman found herself in an impossible position, she acted out, and couldn’t believe what these guys did because of it.
Wow. Their perspective was amazing. Instead of lashing our right back, they realized that she was just embarrassed and stuck in a terrible situation. Would you have reacted this way? Offered to fill up her tank after she talked to you that way? I am ashamed to say that the thought wouldn’t have even crossed my mind. I would have been offended and maybe even angry. Is smiling a crime? But reading this story opened my eyes. The next time someone is off-handedly cruel in a situation like that, I’m going to change my mindset. You never know what someone is going through, and this story is all the proof that we need.
