You know the saying by Elbert Hubbard “when life hands you lemons make lemonade”? I like the thought of handing the lemons to somebody else and let them make the lemonade. Im not talking about passing the buck but support.
Today I spent my lunch following the questionable driving direction given by Siri. By the end of the hour I was frustrated with her and hungry. I went to a drive through and forgot to order. I realized my mistake before getting to the pick up window, got out of line and drove back through. When the attendant handed me the order I reminded him that I had asked for a cup of water as well. He handed me a drink and said, “I made you a lemonade.”
Siri handed me lemons but this guy took them and made lemonade.
Some days it really is the small things that matter.
