“ 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 while away her time. She bought a packet of cookies too.
She sat down on an armchair, in the VIP room of the airport to rest and read in peace.
Beside the airmchair where the packet of cookies was, a man sat down, opened his magazine and started reading.
When she took the first cookie, the man took one too. She felt infuriated but didn’t say anything. She just thought: “ What a nerve! If I was in the mood I would have punched him not to ever forget this daring!”
For each cookie she took, the man took one too. She was infuriated to her limit but still she couldn’t react
When there was only one cookie left, she thought: “Uh... What would this annoying man do now?” Then the man divided the last cookie into 2, giving her one half.
Ah! That was too much! She was way too far annoyed! Then she closed her book, picked-up her things and headed to the boarding place.
When she sat down in her seat inside the plane, she looked into her purse to take her eyeglasses, and to her surprise, her packet of cookies was there, untouched, still unopened!
She felt ashamed!! She realized that she was the wrong one... She had forgotten that she kept her cookies in her purse.
The man divided his cookies with her, wihtout feeling infuriated, or without getting mad...
...while she was mad thinking that he was taking her cookies. And there was no time then to explain herself... Nor to apologize!”
There are 3 things that u can never recover...
