Why couldn't they be more tolerant?

It made him boil for an instant
He had just walked into the room
Sheepishly he remarked without thinking
'sorry I'm late'
Then someone replied,
'it is ok, we're just leaving!'

On another occasion, unwittingly he blurted out
without even looking up,
'what's the time now, anyone?'
A nerd (Yes, he was!) stood up
He went into a discourse on how to make a watch

Why couldn't they be more tolerant?
Why indulge in sarcasm to show displeasure?
Why time wasting to square off points?
Why not allow for some freedom in little mistakes?

All goes to show the truth of the adage,
'look before you leap'

  1. Look indeed, because you never know what may take seed. Some just have no time for anyone, or at least make like they don't.

  3. Indeed small mistakes needs to be mistakes... there are often just a smoke screen for big mistakes anyway.

    1. A kindness given will return to the giver, just as a need to put down will come back to haunt the one who puts down.
