Welcome to this week’s MondayMotivator.
In 2006 there were a lot of invalid assumptions about why a climber was passed by by 40 other climbers and left to die. A lot of armchair judging went on that took the gloss off an enormous achievement by Mark Inglis.
Recently I came across a documentary that investigates what happened and why. It was while I was pondering David Sharp’s death again and why we judge others I came across a little story which clearly illustrates we shouldn’t judge others before we know the whole story.
A State of Affairs
A bus stops and two guys get on. They sit down and engage in an animated conversation. The lady sitting behind them ignores them at first, but her attention is galvanized when she hears one of the men say the following:
“Emma come first. Den I come. Den two asses come together. I come once-a-more. Two asses, they come together again. I come again and pee twice. Then I come one last-a time.”
“You foul-mouthed swine,” retorted the lady indignantly. “In this country we don’t talk about our sex lives in public!”
“Hey, cool-a down lady,” said the man. “Who talkin’ abouta sex-a? I’m a just-a tellin’ my friend-a how to spell-a ‘Mississippi’.”
Have a terrific week and remember before you pass judgement to get all the facts – they might just be learning how to spell Mississippi.
