Earlier, on my way back home, I had to wait 2 hours for a Bus to send us back to our hometown. It was exhausting, I stood up for so long that my legs got stiff and endured the scorching heat of the Philippines. Also, if we were to add the hundreds of people waiting for different buses as well, the heat is truly suffocating.
Some people got lost searching the end of the lane, they even unintentionally cut the line. They didn’t even ask if they are on the right lane. I was annoyed when I saw them cutting the line especially I have waited for so long. And, yet no one initiate to correct them. People that witnessed it just feign ignorance as if they didn’t see anything. I was like Hey! We’re waiting here as well why can’t you properly line up, internally. It is unfair thus, I decided to ask the destination of the bus they were waiting. Moreover, I took the risk to correct them that they are cutting the line in a polite way. Good thing, they have admitted their mistakes and apologized afterwards moved to the end.
I just realized in this instance that a lot of people are either pretending to be blind or afraid of correcting others mistake. Perhaps, because they do not like retaliation of the other party. Still, it isn’t a valid excuse in this case. Imagined, you have suffered and waited for hours then some random guy just cut the line. It is unfair for everyone in the lane. It isn’t morally acceptable.
People are afraid of taking risks because of failures and negative views of others. Everyone hates failure and no one wants to deviate the accepted norms in the society because they might view you as weirdo or worst, outcast. Still, it is worthy to risk ourselves for righteousness. Telling the people what they have done wrong is also considered as caring although for some people who are narrow-minded they perceived it as something offensive and against them or just plain criticisms. But in reality, they are only depraving themselves of personal development for they only accept compliments and not their flaws.
