Think of Others

Today was a bad day for me in terms of reaffirming my faith in the human race. Not because I think we're inherently evil - no, that's a different discussion. But I do think that we've evolved into an incredibly selfish society, not able to think of anyone beyond ourselves.

In one afternoon of errands, I came across a person taking up two parking spots in a busy parking lot; saw another woman drive into the "Emergency" parking spot at a medical clinic and then proceed to the nearby bank; and watched yet another driver refuse to let someone in from a merge lane.

It's funny, and a little sad, frankly - there are people out there who give so much of themselves to the world. Would it be so much to ask that the rest of us simply try to treat each other with a small amount of respect and courtesy?
