Happiness is putting a human face to a frustrating problem

Yesterday, the bus – which run every 15 minutes – was 45 minutes late. I was frustrated as heck. Then the bus arrived, and the driver was stressed. “The last bus didn’t show,” he said as I climbed on. Poor guy – I am sure he was taking abuse all along the route. Suddenly, instead of feeling frustrated I felt sorry for the driver, and hoped the missing bus (driver) was okay. I was able to relax and enjoy the sunny day on the bus ride home. Empathy has its perks 🙂
