Sensing an angry ego about to erupt, I just told the guy’ Go ahead, finish her work first’, and smiled at both of them before turning to browse the magazine rack near me.
It made me wonder- what makes people so surly? Had the lady said the same thing with a smile, it would have made the situation a lot pleasanter. And, I’m sure she’d have looked prettier too, instead of looking like a thin growling bear (wearing spectacles).
What about you? Do you go on such ego trips sometimes?
What is the cause? Are such people naturally surly,or do life and/or circumstances make them so, so that even the slightest provocation makes them fly off the handle?
Anyone heard this joke? I always find it too funny to think of it happening in real life.Two men met at a bus stop and struck up a conversation.One of them kept complaining of family problems.
Finally the other man said: “You think you have family problems?Listen to my situation.
A few years ago I met a young widow with a grown up daughter.We got married and I got myself a step-daughter.
Later, my father married mystep-daughter.That made my step daughter my step-mother.And my father became my step-son.
Also my wife became mother-in-law of her father-in-law.Much later the daughter of my wife, my step-mother, had a son.
This boy was my half brother because he was my father’s son.But he was also the son of my wife’s daughter which made him my wife’s grand-son.
That made me the grandfather of my half brother.This was nothing until my wife and I had a son.Now the half sister of my son, my step-mother, is also his grandmother.
This makes my father thebrother-in-law of my child, whose step-sister is my father’s wife.I am my step-mother’s brother-in-law, my wife is her own child’s aunt, my son is my father’s nephew and I am my OWN GRAND-FATHER!!!!!!!!!!And you think you have FAMILY PROBLEMS!!!!!!!!!
Cheerio,till next time!!
