There are nice people out there, but to be able to meet them you have to be nice yourself.

Being frumpy all the time doesn’t get you anywhere. This is a lesson I learned from Johnny. I now know why he smiles at every clerk, waitress and any other person we come in contact with.

Where ever we go, people really do treat us different if we are sociable and friendly. They actually remember us if we ever come back. And we end up having a great time.

Why am I writing this?

Well, yesterday we were going to visit a friend who lives at the other side of the town. We took the subway (fastest way to get there) but we couldn’t find two seats next to each other so I sat down and Johnny was in front of me. Then, all of a sudden, the girl next to me moved and let Johnny take her seat.

That was really sweet of her.

This simple gesture of kindness really made my day. Not many people would’ve done that. I mean it takes an effort to move your ass from one seat to another after a working day, so I really appreciate it.
