Thank you, Mr. Ninja

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.

3. A soft word turns away wrath [5].

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.
