You can only imagine my frustration when the chips got stuck!
I started slamming the machine in fury with my palms - unfortunately, due to my nonexistant upper body strength, they remained stuck.
A random woman whom I had never seen before was walking past, saying nothing more than "it got stuck?" Ignoring my response, she tipped back the machine so the chips fell, and continued on her way. I barely had any time to thank her.
Though it was a small action, I was reminded of how wonderful people can be. Such actions can really create a distinction between a potentially bad day and a very good one. I'm going to try doing more of these sorts of things for others, and no matter how your brain functions, I think everybody could afford to bring a few smiles here and there.
