I've been very whiny lately, or so I feel like I have, and I've decided that I'm done being cranky and negative.
It's spring, it's getting warm and is almost time for spring dresses, it's no time to be cranky :)
And, to help me along, I was the recipient of a small bit of very much appreciated gentlemanly behaviour today.
I'd run out for lunch during what was a somewhat hectic day at work and, anxious not to hold up the fast-moving queue at the sandwich shop, I was frantically trying to get correct change out of my purse whilst I waited and, in doing so, I somehow managed to flip several things out of my purse and onto the floor. Credit cards, cash, all scattered around my feet.
Lol, so now I still didn't have the right change counted and my things were all over the place. As I scolded myself under my breath and knelt down (one can't bend in a skirt!) to gather all of my things, the gentleman behind me began helping me, handing me a £10 I had dropped.
It was, in the grand scheme of life, a small gesture...but it was one I very much appreciated and I thanked him profusely. I could be cynical, matter-of-fact even, and allow that he was simply being a decent fellow human being, maybe he was even just being selfish - I was next in the queue and my clumsiness was about to delay his purchase - but I'm going to allow that he was just, quite simply, being a gentleman.
I bought my sandwich and went on my way, feeling a little better about the world :)
