Well, I don't know about all of you but I have had an interesting morning... I had a spat with a stranger! People stared! *cringe* There I was standing in a queue and minding my own business when some woman in front of me starting muttering to the sales assistant that I was irritating her, and could he help me first! Well, as you can imagine that irritated me and I said so. I told her she had upset me and she said, good, she was glad about it! I'm not proud about it but I lost it a bit and the sales staff had a go at me for having a go at the woman. And of course that upset me even more!
I wish I had been calmer about the whole situation but I have had it with rude people. I don't know if its like this everywhere, or maybe I just notice it more because I'm home with The Toddler* (and am out and about a lot) but people are just so unkind to each other. All the time.
But instead of complaining to the store, or my husband, I've decided that I am going to be kinder to strangers because that encounter this morning really upset me. I'm not talking about extravagant gestures - just simple things like holding a door open or saying thanks. And the first nice thing I am going to do is give away the Hello Olive Apple print below. It's printed on lovely recycled board and looks great in real life - even if I do say so myself ;-) All you have to is leave a comment. A nice one please - I'm feeling a bit sensitive :-) I'll pick a random winner this weekend.
(I've finally got a few items printed for my soon-to-open Etsy shop (yay) and this is one of the designs. Just need to get them all photographed and uploaded. Hooray!).
Oh, and sorry for moaning but it feels good to get it all out :-)
