I went to the gas station today in a hurry. When the card reader wouldn't work, saying "please see attendant", I got all irritated. I went inside... the guy was quite nice and asked if I could hold for one minute while the pumps were closing out. I gave a somewhat snooty fine and waited for what was more like 30 seconds before he said it was working. As I walked out to the car I just felt so disgusted with myself. Really? Did I just give him attitude because I had to walk inside? Had to wait a minute? Had to be "inconvenienced"? I felt so bad I went back in after my gas was pumped and told him thanks and that I was sorry for being impatient :) haha
I was 17 when I took my first trip out of the country. I went t o Honduras with 7 people, and we built 6 houses in 10 days for (and with) the people in a tiny little town near Guacamaya who had lost their homes to Hurricane Mitch.
