You do not know the stress someone else is under.
Be kind ON PURPOSE. Just be extra kind just in case someone needs it.
The other day I saw a woman be verbally and physically rude to a check out lady at the grocery store just because the equipment was not working at the self check out. There were other checkers open. There was nothing this worker could do to fix the equipment that second. She sweetly apologized to the rude lady. After the rude woman left and took her poisonous attitude with her I walked over to the check out lady and said, “Please don’t let that ruin your day.” She said, “I have a cancer screening this afternoon. There are bigger things going on in my life.”
I wish the rude person could have heard that. Maybe it would have changed the way she treated her. Don’t know. But maybe…
You do not know what someone else is going through. Just be kind.
