“ A young lady was waiting for her flight in the boarding room of a big airport.
As she had to wait for many hours, she decided to buy a book to spend her time. She also bought a packet of cookies.
She sat down on a airmchair, in the VIP room of the airport, to rest and read in peace.
Beside the armchair, near the packet of cookies, a man sat down, opened his magazine and started reading.
When she took the first cookie, the man also took one. She felt infuriated but didn’t say anything. She just thought: “ What a nerve! If I was in the mood I would punch his eye for doing this daring!”
To each cookie she took, the man took one. That was annoying her but she couldn’t react.
When remained with only one cookie, she thought: “ah... What this abused man will do now?” Then, the man divided the last cookie in the middle, giving her the half.
Ah! That was too much! She was too much angry! Then, she caught her book, caught her things and headed to the boarding place.
When she sat down in an armchair, inside the plane, she looked into her purse to catch her eyeglasses, and, to her surprise, her packet of cookies was there, untouched, closed!
She felt so much ashamed!! She realized that she was the wrong one... She had forgotten that her cookies were kept into her purse.
The man divided his cookies with her, without feeling infuriated, nervous or mad...
...while she was been very mad, thinking that she was dividing her cookies with him. And there was no more time to explain herself... Nor to apologize!”
