I’m glad you let me know that a Kleenex had fallen out of my pocket when I was fumbling for my keys. I was happy to pick it up because I hate litter too. I made quick use of it to wipe away the tears that sprung to my eyes after the way you yelled at me at the end of a long day. I’m guessing you had a long day too and maybe that’s why you were so angry.
I guess it’s easy to assume the worst about people, like you did about me. But if each of us could give and receive a little more compassion every day I think we’d find this world a happier (and more litter free) place.
