Is it me or are we losing patience a lot faster these days?
I was sitting quietly in the waiting room when my name was called. As I squeezed between the woman standing at the reception desk and an occupied chair to get to the doctor’s office, a feat that is already difficult due to my mobility issues., I managed to squeezed by, but the bottom of my dress got caught on the chair moving it with me.
I immediately said “I’m so sorry, my dress got caught,” as I tried to dislodge said dress. Instead of understanding that it was an accident and accepting my apology, she started complaining about people having no manners and how I did her some great harm and ruined her day.
In this instance don’t think I was the one without manners.
We live on a planet with population issues, we are bound to bump in to each other from time to time.
