This came in an email last month and wanted to take the opportunity to share it with you all today!
"I work in London and take the underground trains to commute every morning. If I get a seat, I first look around to ensure that nobody needs the seat more than I do. Recently I called across to a pregnant lady quite a few metres away to offer my seat to her. The many people who were seated between us studiously kept their heads in their newspapers so they were not called upon to offer their seats instead. The same thing happened the next day when I gave my seat to an elderly person. They were both very grateful and as they thanked me I said, "My pleasure". Then it struck me that it was 'my pleasure'! I had no need to be grumpy with all the other people who did not offer their seats as this made me the receiver of this small bit of pleasure in my journey instead of them!"
Today's Tip: Offer up a seat to someone who desperately needs one, don't wait to be asked and answer with "My Pleasure!
