Check out Steph's blog from today's posting, see how she is such a nice person to pay a skanky lady's fare on a bus ride, ALL OF THREE STOPS MIND YOU, with not even a THANKYOU!! You will get a laugh and a reality check as some people are just like this.
Then you get me, no angel yet, compared to Steph's story perhaps her and I are just alike. I have said this before is someone's comment section. I feel like I got this tattoo on my forehead, "Information desk is HERE!"..."Ask me, I know..". When I went to Sydney last year by my own self (thanks to Mia my 3yo daughter for that line) in November..OMG, it cannot be a year ago...where was I..I yeah, I was walking along minding my own business and I kept getting stopped. Only to have people ask ME directions. I was like, "Well, I am sorry honey, but I am from Mexico..oops, Melbourne, you know, across the boarder there, and I dunno where I am either. But, if you come with me we could both ask the fruit stand man there and I bet he can help you and I will also learn something". So, I did this a few times, not just once, and I got to know the area around St Vincent's Hospital and down towards town.
Turns out, I went for a 3 day stay to Sydney and forgot my mobile charger. I mean, we didn't have to worry about such things not so long ago. So, I went to find a vodaphone outlet and get my battery boosted. They were lovely at the store I found and I got them each a KK Donut for their help.
Oh, and I used my manners!!
Today I am making playdough for me..oops, them to play with. Pink and yellow is order of the day. I haven't had to put soap on Mia's tongue for swearing YET today..and I haven't had to put coins in the swear jar myself yet.
If you are a naturally good natured person, you will undoubtedly attract those who you would prefer not to.....it is just the way it is baby!!
