The other day I was on my way to work and decided to stop at Starbucks for a peppermint hot chocolate and banana bread (who am I kidding!? I go every day). As I exited the highway a car veered in front of me and cut me off and then sped into the lane to get to Starbucks. It was rude. I just thought “wow, they are in a hurry for caffeine…”. I pulled into the drive-thru…behind her, but didn’t glare or do any other gestures to let her know I was mad or angry or confused, whatever.
She paid for my order.
I paid it forward and paid for the car behind me.
You see, I thought she was inconsiderate and in a hurry but the more I thought about, the more I think she may not have seen me. He rear window was icy.
This is just a reminder that sometimes it is easy to think the worst of people or a situation when you just don’t know the circumstance or the situation. Sure, she could have seen me and then felt embarrassed when I was behind her. I like to think she was sorry and felt bad.
