The poetry of Janet Caldwell & More
Response ~ VS ~ Reaction

I have heard it spoken that we might entertain Angels, Unaware. I believed it then, I believe it today. I bring this up because, sometimes we are in a hurry, stressed for numerous reasons and lash out at a perfect stranger. (or are they?)

Today, I received a call from what I thought to be a tel e-marketer and he asked if this was the Hix residence, I politely replied no and hung up. He called back a second time and asked if it was “another” residence, I assured him that it was not and to please remove my unlisted/private number from his list. Well, he did not…ring, ring, ring, the third time and I was sorely irked. He INSISTED that my number was NOT unlisted and I lost it.

I went off on him, ranting like a crazy woman, telling him that he’d BETTER remove my number from his list . . . you don’t want to know the rest. I slammed the phone down and for a while was quite pleased with my “reaction.” Until . . .

I realized that even though, I may have thought him a jerk, he was a man doing his job and maybe I just flunked the “Angels Unaware” test. I will never know. I do know this, I shall think before I speak. Kindness does not cost a thing. In any event, my point is this, be kind to strangers, you never know . . .

Is that the telephone . . . ?
