In the year 2010, I tend to think people are generally assholes. I base this not on what I read in the paper, but in my day-to-day dealings with mankind. As an obviously pregnant woman, I am also reminded on the occasions that a door is not held for me, a seat is not offered, or I have to make a spectacle of myself in line at Target trying to bend down and pick something up. People are rude!
However, every once in a while, someone will do something that gives me pause and makes me think that maybe the human race has a few good people in the mix. Last week, I had such an experience.
I’m not going to name names because she is a lurker and you don’t know her). I’m not going to name deeds (because that is really none of your business). But I want you to know that I am really touched by this person’s actions.
Do you find that people are still kind and good? Have you had a recent experience with someone unexpectedly doing something for you simply out of the kindness of their heart?
