Thank you for your kindness

On the weekend I was not happy, I kept having to deal with rude people. It was really frustrating. I don’t remember where it started but one thing was a woman came on the bus made me move because she didn’t want to walk around me when it would have been about the same distance to get to her seat, then she wanted me to move again so she could be right by the door holding on when she got off, and I was just trying to hold on so I wouldn’t fall. It is not like the bus was crowded and the stop she was getting off was an exchange so the bus driver waits there. She was  so inconsiderate and it frustrated me.

Another thing that happened earlier in the week was when this older lady got so made at this younger girl because she did not have the same beliefs as her. The old lady kept trying to give her papers on what she should believe. The younger girl continued to say no and was very polite. All I have to say is if someone tried to tell me that what I believe is wrong and that I should believe in what they believe and kept pushing it on me. I would not be so happy, and probably not as polite as that girl. Anyways I was so fed up with people.

Sunday came around and my boyfriend and I went to a garage sale. We saw a table we liked and asked how much they said $30 then asked if we had just started out (just moved out) We told them yes, and said we like the table but have no way to get it back to our place that day. The lady then said I will sell it to you for $15 and I will get my husband to deliver it later. Then she asked about some side tables if I like them I said yes but I am not sure where I would put them. She also showed me these beautiful blown glass cats she imported. I bought three little cats and a duck because they were so cute and insisted on selling them to me so cheap. There were bigger glass figures but I knew that I shouldnt be spending too much money.

Anyways that night the wife called to make sure we were home to deliver the table she then asked my boyfriend if his sweet girlfriend (me 🙂 ) would like the side tables. He accepted and when the husband out here to deliver the table he gave us the side tables free. And then ran back out to the car and handed my boyfriend a wrapped package. He told my boyfriend it’s from my wife. When back inside I opened it up to find the glass cat that I had wanted but did not say anything because  felt it would be rude to keep pointing out things I like but didn’t buy.

So thank you to the couple for the random acts of kindness, you made my week brighter and we really appreciate it! And I cannot express how grateful we are!!!

People Watching

When ever I think of people watching I think of the Jack Johnson song off of the Curious George soundtrack. Its funny how some people really enjoy people watching. I know I do I can spend hours just watching people. Especially in the library when there is nothing else to do. Well homework, but really with VIU as it is, I really don’t even know if I am going to bother now. I am so beyond frustrated about that. Seriously it is hurting everyone. But that is another rant for another day. Anyways, people watching, I think I enjoy it because I enjoy watching how other people act, how they dress, because everyone is so completely different that I find it interesting. I spent quite a bit of time the other day in the mall just watching people pass. And its crazy how many people do not even know that you are watching, they are so in their own little world. I do not mean that I watch people like as a creepy thing. Just as an interested person. When watching people I find the little things they do to be so funny. Little quirks that they have. But then thinking about it I most likely do little funny things as well. Then I think about it more and I really funny when people are watching me. So I watch people and enjoy it but when I catch people watching me I am creeped out. Oh how funny people are.
