People Disgust Me.. While at Costco, something caught my attention in the corner of my eye. A woman was trying to get anyone's attention to assist at
the flower kiosk to help her reach a bouquet of roses she wanted to buy, but no one was stopping- in fact, some reached right over the elderly woman's
head to get their own flowers. The reason they were able to so easily reach over her head is that she was in a wheelchair.
I pushed my cart to the side and quickly went to her and asked her which bouquet she wanted and I pulled it out. When I forgot that these flowers
were sitting in water and I pulled them out, we both got wet and had a laugh! I bagged them up, and went to give them to her and asked her where she
would like me to put them.
"right here." as she jesters to her arms and lap. I t is here that I notice that she also doesn't have any hands to hold onto her beautiful flowers.
But she buys flowers... because she still has other senses to enjoy her world with , and God dammit, she's going to make a beautiful day for herself,
even when the world around her doesn't stop to smell the roses. This true story happened to my cousin. His actions reminds me of how we were raised.
You see the rude people are all over, not just here on ATS. The world is lacking in empathy. Pretty sad. But at least one person is trying to make it
better for someone else. There is still a glimmer of hope.
