think twice & be nice

Here are some interesting observations:

  • i was flying somewhere & observed some person get really upset w a flight attendant & chew out the attendant.
  • i was at starbux & saw a person blow off the barista making their beverage

In both of these instances, i was perplexed.  Why would you take out the frustrations of your day on the person responsible for your safety & well being while flying on an airplane?  What good would be accomplished by making a flight attendant angry w you?  Furthermore, why would you dismiss or ignore the person making a drink that you will be consuming? 

Why do we let out or frustrations on someone who is serving us?  Even if they get something wrong or make a mistake, why wouldn’t we extend some of the abundant grace that we’ve received?  Aside from what Jesus tells us to be kind & loving, its just good common sense to think twice & be nice, even if you’re feeling a bit stressed out. 🙂
