Road Rage Victim Gets The BEST Revenge… But It Took Real Courage.
It seems like every few months, we hear a story about someone's road rage going too far: Someone cuts someone off, the person gets far too angry, and the entire thing ends in an ugly brawl.
Well, this isn't that kind of story.
Sure, the guy telling it did get cut off by another driver -- but instead of reacting in anger, he did something totally unexpected. It's a much-needed reminder that anger and revenge aren't the only response we can make to an affront, and that you'll never know what's really going on with another person unless you approach them with kindness -- even if they don't "deserve" it.
Why am I posting a selfie with a coffee cup and a peace sign? Well, I'd like to share something with you. This morning I was driving my car, when a gentleman cut me off and gave me the finger! This surprised me because I was unaware WHY he did this. My thoughts are because he didn't use his turn signal, so it was unexpected....he also shouted "Asshole" to me. Lol
Anyways, I saw he pulled into the Starbucks. Well, I thought, here's my chance to tell him what I think of his poor manners and disrespect. I went in to find him, and I couldn't. So I went to buy myself a coffee, he then comes in line, from the bathroom. I turned around to tell him that it's his lucky day! "What could I buy you? My treat!"
He looked at me almost stunned.
"Really?" He said.
After buying him the drink, I told him that I was the guy he "flipped off" earlier.
"Man, I'm so sorry." He said. "I'm just super stressed."
I told him that it's all good!
We talked for a bit and later we found out that his turn signal is actually burnt out! Lol
So, why am I sharing this?
Because we tend to celebrate people getting revenge, or "getting what they deserve."
My question is, when does it end? When does the fighting and anger stop? It's only when PEACE makes its way in and overcomes.
Remember, everyone may be going through something that you know nothing about.
That is all.
