an open letter to rude people...
it only takes a few extra seconds to hold the door for someone coming in behind you, or to hold an elevator. it's not a lot of extra effort to be polite, to say please and thank you. when riding a bus or public transportation, move your large purse or briefcase to allow someone to sit if it gets crowded. if you bump into someone, say sorry. let people cut in front of you in traffic. share your cookies at lunch. give compliments.
and when someone treats you like crap, or acts like a complete asshole, keep being nice! do it out of spite. don't let the rude people you encounter make you into one of them. be kind and polite in spite of the creeps!
why am i bothering to say this? maybe i have a "case of the mondays". or maybe i work with the nastiest, crab-ass bitch on the planet and i thought i needed to remind myself of all the reasons not to end up like her.
(p.s. doesn't the cat in the image above look just like matilda??? he he he.....)
