“NEXT IN LINE”

I have been having this feeling as if someone or something is trying to set me up as of late, the signs are everywhere, some big, some small, but signs nonetheless. I was standing in line waiting patiently at the grocery store and out of nowhere a man accompanied by his wife cut the line in front of me, so I decided to speak my mind…..

Me:

“Excuse me sir, but I have been standing in this line for over fifteen minutes.”

Man:

“And? I have been living in Tracy for over thirty years.”

Me:

“Thirty years in Tracy, but you have only been living in this line for thirty seconds.”

Man:

YOU GUYSare all comedians, lol…

At this point of our conversation I am at a crossroads, a place in life when one has a brief opportunity to stop and reflect on his or her current situation. As I reflect on my current situation, I have found that I have a decision to make. I can act out my anger as expected, or I can use my mind as a weapon to defend myself against this unwarranted ungodly verbal attack. My decision is an easy one, for I now have a family to care for, and I’ll be damned if my wife receives a wake up call from these four words, “COLLECT CALL FROM DAMON.”

me:

“Excuse me sir, but I have been standing in this line for over fifteen minutes.”

Man:

“And? I have been living in Tracy for over thirty years.”

Me:

“Thirty years in Tracy, but you have only been living in this line for thirty seconds.”

Man:

YOU GUYSare all comedians, lol.”

Me:

“What a coincidence, my wife and I were just talking about how funny the world is, have a safe and blessed day.”

Man: (now laughing) You have a blessed day as well, and by the way, you are next in line, my apologies.”

Me:

“Apology accepted, and thank you.”

Man’s wife:

“No, thank you.”

Cashier:

NEXT IN LINE

“Therefore I want men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.”

Timothy 2:8
