“Let’s have dinner tonight.”
“Ok, what time?”
“I’ll call you.”
*waiting* …. it’s past my dinner time and still waiting.
“Ok I’m here”
“Oh I need another 10 minutes.”
Sometime people just don’t realize how they inconvenience others.
There’s a video going around the internet about a cockroach in a restaurant and two ladies were frantic about it but the waiter was so composed when it landed on him. So the video goes on to say that what stood out was the inability of the two ladies to handle it.
The moral of the story is not what other people do but our reaction / attitude towards it.
While I agree with the moral of the story, I don’t necessarily agree that the ladies should have been all calm and composed like the waiter.
I am quite good at keeping my composure on the outside. Not so good on the inside. I let things stress me out even though I don’t react badly to it or throw a tantrum. However… I don’t think I will ever be able to keep my composure if a cockroach flew at me or sat on me.
There are just some situations in life that deserve an outrageous response. I don’t think it signals your inability to handle situations and I don’t think it’s right to generalize. I think screaming would be quite a normal response… I mean seriously, it’s a cockroach!!
It’s so humid today where I live. Seems like the winter is taking its time this year. I love that smell of winter in the air. Every morning I think may be today but nope!
Before long I suppose I will start complaining that it’s too cold.
Sometimes you need to put your plans on hold to be there for someone else.
It seems like every where I look someone’s thinking about a new idea for an app. In the last couple of weeks, I’ve met three different people who think they will make it big because of the app they are developing. I know there’s an app for almost everything these day. I have to confess I do get really excited when I can use my Apple Pay or find a place on Google Maps. But it got me thinking, how many people are actually successful at this. And even if they are, what are the chances that they make any money out of it.
