We had a massive event this weekend and at some point I was handing out 3D glasses to the masses. It's amazing what people will do for free things and how manners and dignity seem to disappear.
I was being mobbed by people and noticed a little girl (no more than two years old) in the middle of the madness sort of confused as to what was happening. I ignored parents with outreached arms repeating they needed 10 and 12 pairs of glasses and leaned down to hand the little girl a pair. She had no idea what they were, but accepted my gift.
I continued to pass glasses out by the handful and was astounded by how rude people were.
A few minutes later, I realized there was something pulling on my pant leg. I turned around and the little girl was standing at my feet, no taller than my knee. She looked right at me and just said, "Thank you."
I'm not sure I would have made it through my day without that little girl.
