Last weekend, I ran to In-N-Out Burger to grab some lunch to take home. I was actually in the middle of a freezer cooking session and I really didn’t want to mess with another meal while I was trying to make meals for later.
I know. The irony. The logic. It’s there. Trust me.
Regardless, as I approached the drive-thru, I got into a parking lot tangle with another vehicle. The man had been texting and not paying attention to what he was doing. He ended up in front of me in line. And I was just a little exasperated.
Okay. A lot. I shook my head. I gave dirty looks in his rear view mirror. I was a stinker. I thought that he was not worthy of the Lego ninja sticker he had on the back of his car.
When I got to the pay window, it turns out he had paid for our order.
Say what? Yes, that’s what FishPapa said, too. Mr. Ninja reminded me of a few things that day.
1. It’s better not to text and drive.
2. Patience is a virtue, even when you think you’re right.
4. Be generous in the take-out line; it really can make someone’s day.
Thank you, Mr. Ninja. I hope that I can be nicer next time I perceive an offense.
