Some time back I spent about three hours writing and doing emails at one of our local malls. I love this place because there are lots of tables to sit at and the mall has free wireless access so I can be online all the time. As I was exiting the mall I noticed a woman about 20 feet away from the entrance heading into the mall. As I walked out the door I held the door open for this woman for a few seconds. As she walked by me into the mall she said "WOW!" She was surprised that I actually took three seconds out of my life to hold a door open for a complete stranger. Imagine what I could have done with those three seconds that I wasted :-).
I must admit to you that there were plenty of times that I was a horse's hind and had people cursing me under their breath. I can also probably say that it will probably happen in the future. However, I firmly believe that being aware of how you come off to other people will help you be more conscious of the behavior and will reduce the number of horse's ass incidents. I guess you could call me a recovering horse's hind…
