Today I ran into some jerks-drives and in a dinner place. After we ate dinner, we were leaving about 12 people were coming in. One of my goals was to try to be kinder to people. The people were all ages, from very old to in their 30's. I held the door open for every single one of them. The young people all said thank you, the older ones said nothing. To them, I said a little loudly, "Thank you VERY much" or You are certainly welcome". You could tell they were pissed but I felt so good. I was nice and didnt say anything mean, but I got my point across. Then this driver was being a jerk. The thruway was a mess. What should have taken 15 minutes took over an hour. The kid (you could tell he was a freshman in college) kept on trying to get out of the lanes and speed up and then get back into the lane we were in. Then he drove about 15 miles an hour when the speed limit is 55. This was something that would have really set me off. When we finally got to the left side of him and his window was open, I blew him a kiss and said "Lov ya", which pissed him off even worse. It was wonderful. I felt great. My new goal is "treat 'em with kindness, it will kill them and keep me sane. Oh, I love it! Maybe I am getting the hang of this.
