How Would You Handle this Situation?
So a few years ago (I lived in the country then) I was driving 20 minutes to town and some cattle had just been pushed down the road, being moved between pastures.
Because this was a normal occurrence I waited and then continued my drive into town on this hot summer day.
I got up to speed and drove over some cow manure. Coming up to it I didn’t think about it because it was normal to see this in the road. But it was a hot day!
It sprayed that sh*t all over the side of my rig. Thank God my windows were up!
There are a few reactions here: 1) get completely pissed off and stay angry the rest of the day because the universe was obviously out to get me, 2) return home immediately because I couldn’t be seen like this and had to wash it all off right away, 3) laugh it off and go about my business.
Well, I had to get to town so I continued on my way. I laughed the entire drive, plus then some, and days afterward and also while writing this down. It was quite hysterical.
The point here is you have a choice in how you react to what happens to you. Sh*t does happen – literally, but that’s OK. It can turn in one of the funniest things that’s ever happened too!
