I was in the local super market the other day. I was there because I needed to buy a Telstra sim card so I could activate a friends iPhone and then
get on the phone to Telstra and have them unlock it. I'm a 41 year old man and the girl behind the counter was in her 20's. We struck up a
conversation about what I was doing and the interesting thing is that this appeared to cause a panic with the other staff in the store. They started
bumbling around us with boxes of crap and two of the other female staff positioned themselves within earshot of our conversation and started looking
over at us and nattering in that weird local pitchfork wielding kind of way.
I go into this local Coles store everyday, it exists on a plateau in the Northern Rivers region of NSW Australia. Any way this whole buzzing around
what was a nice conversation totally broke the flow of it, I mean it was just a friendly exchange and I do wonder why people feel the need to behave
in this interfering and pack like way. I feel it may offer us clues on a local level as to many of the problems and conflicts that humanity dishes out
to itself on a regular basis.
I left the store feeling flustered, I mean there was nothing more to it than friendship, but goodness me it's only one of many things; but this world
need more harmonious exchanges between it's humans and I can really see the anger and frustration that interfering busybodies can cause on the ground
level of our lives and how this translates into bigger world issues......or at least I think I can.
