In town we have shared taxis, I was in one of those after a rather difficult day when nothing works and the worst happens, so you just want to disappear. Sitting in the middle of the back seat next to a sleepy man (that was already sleeping) when a guy got into the cab and smiled at me, I did it back as a mute hello and tried to do the same as the man of the other side. The man of the taxi started driving, I was falling asleep when i felt the new guy touched my shoulder like trying to talk, as i had a bad day i didn't want but neither wanted to be rude so i turned to him and before i could say something he asked, do you know how much does the taxi charges?, i answer -yes, 25 pesos- then he asked me back, do you mind if i pay your trip? it was so unexpected that i got confused, smiled, said it's okay, don't worry, thank you at the same time and kept smiling, then i started asking question to myself like, do i know him? or maybe he know me, maybe I look quite sad, wtf, he's gonna ask my number, i'm gonna ask his number, and by the time i was thinking all those things, he said, have a good night and left the taxi, i was in shock, never came that possibility to my head, i was just thinking about how bad my day had been. I stopped my brain and i stopped my brain and begin seeing all around like trying to understand, then i saw at the man of the other side, he still sleeping. I saw his bag, his hands, his hair and his face, he was terrible tired. When i left the taxi i paid for his trip, one good action for another. The smily guy more than a trip gave me the capability of looking at the others. After that day, when i'm having a bad time i just stop and see how everybody moves then i dont know how but i feel better
alrighty. just pulling up my word processor and i will edit the shit out of that
did you understand it?
im getting better!
In town we have shared taxis. I was in one after a rather difficult day, when nothing works and the worst happens, so you just want to disappear. In the middle of the back seat I sat next to a sleepy man (that was already sleeping) when another guy got into the cab and smiled at me. I smiled back as a silent hello and tried to do the same as the man on the other side. The driver started off toward our destinations. I was falling asleep when I felt the new guy touch my shoulder, trying to talk. Because I had a bad day, I didn't want to, but also didn’t want to be rude. I turned to him and before I could say something he asked, do you know how much does the taxi charges? I answer, “yes, 25 pesos”. He asked me back, “do you mind if I pay for your trip? It was so unexpected that I got confused, smiled, said it's okay don't worry, thank you though, and kept smiling. Then I started asking questions to myself like: Do I know this man? Or maybe he knows me? Maybe I look quite sad? Wtf, he's going to ask my number. I'm going to ask his number. And by the time I was done thinking all those things, he said, have a good night, and left the taxi. I was in shock, that possibility hadn’t crossed my mind. I was just thinking about how bad my day had been. I stopped my brain and began looking around, trying to understand. Then I saw at the man on the other side, who was still sleeping. I saw his bag, his hands, his hair, and his face. He was terribly tired. Before leaving the taxi, I paid for his trip. One good action for another. The graciousness of the kind gentleman gave me the capability of looking at the others in a new way. Ever since that day, when I'm having a difficult time, I just stop and think about the people around me. Then, I don’t know how but I feel better.
