Welcome to We Care Wednesdays. Each Wednesday we want to talk about things the bother us no matter how big or small. Plus, we want to challenge everyone to do a little RAK (random act of kindness) during the upcoming week. We will be giving a suggestion for something simple to do. What we would really like is for you to be part of this and to give us suggestions, too.
So let’s start off with a little annoyance that for some reason bothers the heck out of me. I always park towards the back of the parking lot where ever I go shopping. I like to have the space in front of me empty so I can pull out instead of backing out. However, it never fails that someone will pull into the space in front of me while I am in shopping. This happens to me all the time. Even at 6am when I go to the market on the weekends. There can be hundreds of free spaces in the lot, and I will end up with someone parking in front of me. Yes, it is stupid for this to bother me. But it does. So now I just try to laugh about it. So what little things bug the dickens out of you?
Today’s RAK: Since I mentioned the market, there is something I started doing a while ago to see when kind of reactions I would get. If there is someone behind you in the checkout line, place the divider behind your items so that person can start putting their items on the conveyer belt. Sometimes it will take people by surprise. Since I started doing this some time ago, I am noticing more people doing the same thing. Only once have I had a gentleman make a smart remark about it. I just looked at him and smiled. No response is sometimes more powerful than a quick comeback.
We encourage you to participate and add your link below to the link-up. We will be offering this every Wednesday until further notice and look forward to reading your words! If you don’t have a blog to link up, feel free to write in the comment section! If you do link up a blog post, please visit anyone that may link up as well to keep the sense of community going!
