Yes yes, I know. Monday has reared her ‘annoying’ head again. You know she comes around once a week but you are still as shocked by the sound of your alarm, alerting you to her presence.
If you are a commuter, especially one that lives in a big city, no doubt you will have seen and experienced some things that have made you question humanity. That man who pushed you out of the way to get onto the train first. The people who think their bags are more worthy of a seat on the busy train than you are. Those people who rush by without stopping to see if that lady needed help carrying her heavy suitcase down up the stairs to the platform. There are so many reasons of why you may have lost faith in humanity and turn into one of those people who avoid eye contact and smiling at strangers. You’ve become hardened to your surroundings and in some ways I don’t blame you.
I know it’s hard but try to smile at someone and say hello when you are commuting today. You might just be surprised to get a smile or a ‘hello’ back. (Either that or you might just get a few seats on that busy train)
