Over the last few weeks I have had the misfortune to be confronted by a number of rude, self-absorbed people. A food delivery motorcyclist dangerously cut me up told me to “**** off” when I sounded my horn and then when I took him to task about swearing said “go away *****” in front of one of my sons.
In another instance I tried to have a quiet word with someone who had someone parked on a disabled access pathway outside my doctor’s surgery and was told to “shut your mouth and move on”.
I don’t understand why people act in this way. Are they too embarrassed to hold their hands up and say sorry when they are called out on something?
I also despair when I read about disabled or other people who need it not being offered seats on buses/trains/tubes. When did people become so insular to stop seeing what’s happening around them and put themselves out for others?
It makes my heart sing to see kindness being shared. I know a couple of people who never have a bad word to say and whose thoughtfulness makes everyone feel uplifted. They say a little kindness goes a long way so let’s spread it around!
