I went to pick my Jovial up from school yesterday,and i learnt a so called life lesson from an embarassing situation i was in. So the story goes...................
As it was another 30 minutes before my Jovial could come out from school, so i took a stroll along the shops opposite the school, i came to a coffee shop ala Starbuck style and i saw a newspaper on the table, i grabbed a sit, ordered my drink and sat down.
As i was leafing through the pages of newspaper,there came a man shabbily dressed bent towards me and said something like this " so ok we can share the newspaper" thus he took the central spread of the newspaper and took the whole chunk of it without asking my permission, i squinted at him with disgust and really felt like telling him off.
I was already fuming mad and i could not believe that how could there be a man so rude and blatantly ill-mannered to do what this man did, i could not help to throw my disgusted glances at him over my shoulder and surprisingly he acted non-chalantly towards me,that got me even more mad.
Not long after, this guy walked towards me and gently put back the newspaper supposedly he took from me and walked back to his seat, i got real boiling mad at him simply because i was thinking to myself how could this guy not even saying "thank you" to me for snatching away the newspaper from me and i told myself i really needed to give him the real piece of me, just before i could look back at him with the intention of scolding him, he.................................
He came towards me and politely he said this to me." i am sorry brother, i need to run now, and i need my newspaper back, if you dont mind?" I was like biting the bullets coming from my own gun.
There i was acting as if i was righteous and scornful towards the one who was really righteous, the one who was willing to share his newspaper with me, when he shouldn't need to. To be very frank i felt real bad about myself and about my superficial rightiousness.
Q)Have you ever wronged a person when he was all right but you?
I AM TRULY ASHAMED OF MYSELF, FOR LOOKING AT PEOPLE WITH MY OWN FLAWED JUDGEMENTAL EYES, I THOUGHT I WAS RIGHT,IN ACTUAL FACT I WAS DEAD WRONG.
p/s : Next Time, i would allow myself sometimes before i judge....
