WhatsApp! – The Cookies Lesson.

A young lady was waiting for her flight in the Boarding Room of a big airport. As she would need to wait many hours, she decided to buy a book to spend her time and also bought a packet of cookies. She then sat down in an armchair, in the VIP room of the airport, to rest and read in peace.

Beside the armchair, where the packet of cookies lay, a man sat down in the next seat, opened his magazine and started reading. When she took out the first cookie, the man took one also. She felt irritated but said nothing. She just thought “What a nerve! If I was in the mood, I would punch him for daring!” And, for each cookie she took, the man took one too.

This was infuriating her, but she didn’t want to cause a scene. When only one cookie remained, she thought: “Ah… what would
this abusive man do now?” Then, the man, taking the last cookie, divided it into half, giving her one-half. 

What? That was too much! She was much too angry now! In a huff, she insulted the man, took her book and her things, and stormed out to the boarding place. When she sat down in her seat, inside the plane, she looked into her bag, to take her eyeglasses and, to her surprise, her packet of cookies was there, untouched, and unopened! She felt so ashamed! She realised that she was wrong. She had forgotten that her cookies were in her bag. The man had shared his cookies with her, without feeling angered or bitter, while she had been very angry, thinking that she was sharing her own cookies with him. And now, there was no chance to explain herself…nor to apologise!

In life, there are 4 things that you cannot recover…
1. The cake… after it’s eaten!
2. The word… after it’s spoken!
3. The occasion… after it’s lost!
4. The time… after it’s spent!

Let’s all be careful and watch our ATTITUDE ALWAYS.
