So... I'm always amazed at people and how gracious they can be.
I'm even MORE amazed by how petty and ungracious they can be.
I got into an elevator the other day and it quickly became crowded. The last two people to enter were an elderly couple. We all had to budge up a bit for them.
"OW!" a woman across from me exclaimed.
"Oh!" said the little old man. "I'm so sorry! Did I step on your foot?"
"Yes," she snapped. "You did."
We were all clearly taken aback.
"I'm very sorry," repeated the little old man.
The woman didn't even look at him, let alone acknowledge his apology.
