“…Life is short… Break the occasional rule; Forgive quickly; Kiss slowly; Love truly; Live simply; Laugh always… Smile quickly… Be Humble… Be Respectful…Place others before yourself…”

Yet… Another …CANCELLEED FLIGHT:  Because of a cancelled flight… At one of the packed, Delta ticket counters… all of ticket agents were doing their best to politely process each passenger as quickly as they could. A man toward the end of the snaking line of passengers was obviously impatient and very frustrated at having to wait so long in the slow-moving line.  Finally… feeling very frustrated… he decided to march right up to the counter pulling his wheeled suitcase behind him… and demanded that he be given his boarding pass.

The ticket agent turned, looked at him, blinked, took a shallow, deep breath and said, “Sir, as you can see there are many passengers ahead of you. We are doing our best to process the passengers as fast as we can. I’m afraid you’ll have to get back in line and wait your turn.”

Outraged and red in the face… the man yelled at the ticket agent saying, “Do you know who I am?” The ticket agent turned, looked at him, blinked again… took another shallow…  deep breath, picked up the public address system microphone and said calmly, “Your ATTENTION please: There is a man at the Delta ticket counter at Gate #6, who does not know who he is. Anyone who may be able to identify this man is asked to please step forward and identify him, by coming to Gate 6. Thank you.”  Everyone laughed hysterically…and the angry man said… “S…. you.”  Smiling, the ticket agent said, “I’m sorry Sir, you’ll have to get in the line for that, too.”

Life is short… Break the occasional rule; Forgive quickly; Kiss slowly; Love truly; Live simply; Laugh always… Smile quickly… Be Humble… Be Respectful…Place others before yourself…

Matthew 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”  Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
