This weekend my husband and I came across several different versions of a particularly special kind of person.
It is the person you most dread seeing.
The one that can keep you fuming for hours and hours after the interaction.
We went to Costco for our monthly influx of bigger-than-needed items, and the store was awash with such individuals. From the middle aged guy in the truck telling the poor women with the three kiddos to get “out of the f*cking way” in the parking lot, to the woman with perfect makeup and high heels (at Costco, on a Saturday!!) who stared through us until our son was a little bit loud then her stare of death shriveled our heads, the place was teeming with the unsavory.
On the way home (our son playing with his new DanTDM character in the backseat reminding us of how awesome the world is), we exchanged stories of the meanies that we interact with on a day to day basis.
There are a ton.
Now, I have spent time analyzing this, that the rudeness and unkindness is because of the unhappiness, so I am not going to go down that rabbit hole today; rather, I just want to give a shout out to those who are kind.
I want to give kuddos to those who smile in the face of the glares, the snide remarks, and the rude hand gestures.
I want to give every single one of you kind people a virtual hug.
The world needs kindness.
Especially towards those who are unkind.
Keep up the amazing work.
*insert virtual hug here*
