Thankless days & other rudities
In honor of the upcoming random act of kindness on November 13th being hosted by the two gracious ladies, Se'Lah & Anyes, I decided to try to perform a RAK each day leading up to the day, in the footsteps of Operation You.
First day was an epic fail. I saw a young boy in the gas station buying a hotdog/ chips, but was apparently short of cash. It flicked in my mind instantly to help him out. Well, this little man snatched the money I was offering with not so much as a thank you or a drop dead. When I prompted him by asking,'what do you say?', he barely parted his lips to let a very small thank you escape. Great.
I work in a Township that believes it is superior to the rest of the town. The attitudes of the (mostly) women and elderly is one of entitlement, basically because of where they live. When I go out @ lunch time, you would not believe the rudeness of these folks. They wear stiff, uptight, masks that cannot smile, nor speak. This bothers me because I am a speaking-type person. A look you right in the eye & give you a big smile type.
However, I've held open my last door for the person behind me or coming toward me, only to have them look at me as if I'm the bellhop waiting for a tip. In this crazy time on this planet, we need to come together, not stand apart.
Today, I pledge to commit more random acts of kindness, instead of the instinctive random acts of violence! (LOL!)
