I never cease to be amazed by the inconsideration of people. Sure you hear great, uplifting stories about the generosity of a complete stranger on the news, but the reason the stories are so news worthy is because they are as rare as hen’s teeth.
We live in a world of ME FIRST; the type of world where a woman with a cartload of crap will race to the one available checkout line in Wal-Mart and elbow someone with one item out of the way.
Then to add to her inconsideration, she will make inane small talk about every single item in her cart…what a good deal it is, how she’s always wanted one, how she’s never tried this product…until the person with the loaf of bread wants to ram the entire loaf in her pie hole.
We also live in a world where people don’t dim their headlights while driving at night. Modern day headlights are slightly dimmer than the sun on the low setting.
Making sure the highway is clear before you pass another car is also a form of consideration which is not present in our world.
And when winter driving conditions have turned the highway into an ice rink and visibility is zero due to blowing snow, don’t worry about slowing down. There’s usually a snowplow somewhere.
