What I Learnt From A Lady Who Jumped The Queue!

Here I am, in a shop and here comes this lady who jumps the queue and presents her stuff to the till operator right in front of me. I ask her why she is jumping the queue and she just says "Sorry bhudi I am in a very big hurry".

I feel my anger rising for this kind of disrespect. "You should have a least asked not just get in front of us." I felt like bursting up to tell her a piece of my mind but for some reason i just let it go.

As i went outside the shop i find this lady standing with another lady carrying heavy parcels who had remained outside waiting for her.

The other lady who had remained outside the shop waiting for this lady who offended me says to me, "Excuse me my brother, are you Gwizi?" I nodded my head puzzled as i had never seen her before. She then says "Wow! That's great. I read your book which i borrowed from my colleague. I recognized that you are that guy on that book's profile pic. I was inspired by your work....."

As she said this my heart was beating fast. It was such a close shave. What would have been the case if i had shouted at her sister inside the shop? The man whose work had inspired her would have been seen as one of the greatest pretenders in town.... not a good representative of Christ.

I know of a person who had a conflict with someone in a bank queue, only to meet the same person in an interview as one of the interviewers a month later.

Mind your step, you may never know who is watching or the implications and complications of your attitude in the days ahead.
