Today is Thanksgiving Eve and I am most thankful for being off for the next four days! So today, getting up for work wasn’t so bad because I knew I just have to make it until 5pm.
I’m waiting for the Express bus and it is raining. It’s okay, I have a four-day weekend ahead of me. I am talking to my aunt on my cell as I do every morning on the way to work. It’s the only time we really have to speak and she lives far far away.
I get on the bus and I talk pretty low because I know that people are so cranky in the morning and I only stay on for like 10 minutes out of the hour ride so up until now, it has never been a big deal. This guy sits next to me and almost immediately he is tapping me on my arm and throwing a “Yo” my way. (I hate when anyone touches me, let alone a cranky stranger).
I laughed in my head and obviously continued my conversation because after all, we were both using “Public Transportation” and this is not his bedroom.
Then I would totally understand his frustration and raise the bigger question as to why I was in this stranger’s bedroom to begin with.
But seriously, there is definitely a way to approach someone and it is not touching someone without permission and throwing “yo” at me before 7am in the morning. Still I wasn’t going to let it get me down!
Because after all, tomorrow begins a four-day weekend! Nothing is taking that joy away from me, not even you, cranky man!
Good Day 🙂
