Disclaimer: Oooooo……I apologize for being absent for such a long time. actually I bought a pet crocodile and it ate my hands off. And also any remaining energy to write sensibly. On anything of significant value.
Crocodile : I can assure you this is 500% bullshit seriously ……….
Let’s get back on track with the first thing on my mind today : Reaction & Response .
It’s around the corner. Instead of doing the obligatory explanation of what Reaction & response means to me, I’ve decided to take a sarcastic tone on the whole topic. As a Human being , I’ve seen and experienced hilarious and often hypocritical behavior during the month by people around me and, in some cases, by my very own self. It’s often amusing when you get to witness an alteration in social etiquette and interaction simply because massive precedence . I enjoy that and, in that time, I find the funniest people who I fancy doodling later on. (Secretly.) (Because I don’t want to get killed.) (Humor can be fatal) (These brackets are nice.)
So I decided to ask people what they love about it, Feel free to share your funny anecdotes in the comments section.
The Cockroach Tricks…… Quite impressive,
let me tell you the story once at a restaurant, a cockroach suddenly flew from somewhere and sat on a blond danish gal. She started screaming out of fear. With a panic stricken face and trembling voice, she started jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the cockroach.Her reaction was contagious, as everyone in her group also got panicky. The lady finally managed to push the cockroach away but it landed on another lady in the group.
Now, it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue the drama. The waiter rushed forward to their rescue.
In the relay of throwing, the cockroach next fell upon the waiter. The waiter stood firm, composed himself and observed the behavior of the cockroach on his shirt.When he was confident enough, he grabbed it with his fingers and threw it out of the restaurant.
I was Sipping my coffee and watching the amusement, the antenna of my mind picked up a few thoughts and started wondering, was the cockroach responsible for their histrionic behavior?
If so, then why was the waiter not disturbed?
He handled it near to perfection, without any chaos. It is not the cockroach, but the inability of the ladies to handle the disturbance caused by the cockroach that disturbed the ladies.I realized that, it is not the shouting of my father or my boss or my wife that disturbs me, but it’s my inability to handle the disturbances caused by their shouting that disturbs me.it’s not the traffic jams on the road that disturbs me, but my inability to handle the disturbance caused by the traffic jam that disturbs me.
More than the problem, it’s our reaction to the problem that creates chaos in our life.
Moral from the story:
1)We understood, we should not react in life.
2)We should always respond.
3)The women reacted, whereas the waiter responded.
Note: (Beware !!! I,m not a short temper ….but i have a quick reaction to Bullshit……)This time m not kidding….
Reactions are always instinctive whereas responses are always well thought of, just and right to save a situation from going out of hand, to avoid cracks in relationship, to avoid taking decisions in anger, anxiety, stress or hurry.
