No, I NEED it...

I try to be as pleasant as possible to everyone I meet. I truly believe that smiling at someone can completely change an interaction. I was at a coffee shop yesterday. Yes, I'm a bit behind on my posts - deal with it (said whilst smiling). So anyways, at the coffee shop, I really needed to plug in my computer. I looked all around me, and every single outlet was taken. No matter, I thought. Someone will let me charge for a couple minutes, and then we can switch off. I asked one woman who said her laptop won't work without a charger. Fair enough. I asked the next man very politely, while smiling.

"I NEED it," he said huffily.

Yikes. In that moment, even putting my best foot forward clearly wasn't enough!
