I don’t know about you but I think life can beat ya up pretty good.
Sundays are my replenishment day. As the week wears on though, I’m ready to crack. Do you relate?
The key to helping each and everyone of us on earth, is to be kind.
I witnessed a stranger needing kindness and God opened the opportunity to help. We went to our favorite restaurant and our waitress was taking care of the entire restaurant. Seating customers, taking orders, serving, bussing the tables, and checking them out at the cash register. I think she even dealt with the online orders. It was not good.
I had just read reviews for this restaurant that morning and there were lots of good ones, but it had its share of bad reviews too. The main themes of bad reviews were complaints about not being waited on quick enough, waiting too long to get their food, or the order wasn’t perfect.
After watching our poor waitress, I started burning up inside at these reviews. Here was a fellow human being, working so hard at attempting to keep up and then maybe in a similar situation, that person gets a bad review? UNBELIEVABLE!
I’m going to go off on this, a second! If you should happen to be a person like this who thinks it is fair to judge a worker serving you, step back and take a look at the whole situation! Notice that you may be self centered and walking around with a sense of entitlement. Attitudes like this are for the birds! Maybe think instead of “what can this server do for me?”, try thinking “how can I help this poor person in this situation?”
This waitress had forgotten to give us our dessert and when she returned with it, I said “I want you to know that you are doing a really good job in these conditions, I see you are trying to take care of everyone and we appreciate you.” She burst into tears.
The world is getting nastier. Be the one that makes a difference. Be kind. Thank you.
