The "So Rude"- ME

The other day, i was in the canteen, waiting for my turn to order, and talking to someone i knew.
The canteen was packed with people, waiting for their turn.
I was so involved in talking to the person next to me that, unintentionally,
and without even intending to do so (Sorry! for using that phrase, Lawyer!! can't help it),
i just tapped on the feet of the chair next to me, with my shoe. 
I didn't notice, whether the person sitting on that chair noticed it or not !!
then i did it again, subconsciously..., The man (sitting on that chair) then looked at me with a bit of impatience. The person talking to me, then said that i was disturbing the man. then i immediately stopped it. Only to realize that i was  totally being rude with him...without even knowing it.

Before leaving, the man said to me that, i was disturbing him, while he was eating, and stared at me with a blank expression on his face. I couldn't do anything.. but to ignore him, as if it was not my fault. (Yes!! I Didn't Even Apologize, Shame on me...)
and then i spent the rest of the evening, thinking, how pathetic, i was...
to not have apologized at that moment.

I think, we all do this a lot..
We annoy people around us, without even knowing it,
and don't even apologize.
We, ALL... at some point of time, must have hurt, disturbed, irritated, or annoyed, someone in our lives. And we are all guilty of it.

It might be just a comment, it might just be a gesture, or a bad joke, yes, we all did it.
To us it was just something trivial. But to the other person,
it might not be so...
It might have ruined their day..
It might have made them feel awful.
It might have ripped them apart.

This is the reason, why i don't play jokes around most of the people, because, you just don't know, which joke offends whom!!! Especially around children. I hate it when adults poke fun at children, by name calling. this might be fun for the one laughing, But, to the child on the other end?
it might have made him shed a tear in the dark. And that.. is the worst possible thing one could do..

However, I don't know that man, and I haven't see that man anywhere else again,
( And hope not to)

But, as they say, the moment you accept it, that you are responsible for some wrong, and the moment you regret it, is the moment you are forgiven.

So, Here it goes.

I'm Sorry for being RUDE

With Love,
