Especially when there are people in the world who have a bad attitude..
Do you have days that you are surrounded by people with attitude? Do you feel the urge to smack them?
Somehow, and I really don't understand HOW this happens, there are people around me who often forget and mistake my patience for acceptance. Or understanding.
That can be a dangerous thing to do.
Because, after encountering these bad moods for a time, it ALMOST always results in the offenders seeing MY attitude which DOES always put their attitude to utter shame.
But then, a thought pops into my head of something a student said during the school year...something that is hysterical. Like one day during the last month of school---
Student: Mrs. Librarian, I know what it is!
Mrs. Librarian: You know what what is?
Student: It's your hair!
Mrs. Librarian: Oh, I got a hair cut yesterday.
Student: I like it! It makes you look almost pretty!
Mrs. Librarian: Why, thank you, sweetie.
And then I start laughing.
Yep, kids. You just never know!
How nice to be reminded that life is just too short to let the bad attitude of others ruin your day. I just hope I remember that as I venture out to Wally World this morning. Ha!
