There was an empty milk jug on the kitchen counter this morning. Someone drank the last of the milk last night and left the empty gallon container on the counter.
My day is ruined.
How can they be so insensitive? Why didn’t they place the empty milk jug in the recycling bin?
I am instantly angry.
Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.
I am a fool.
It is, after all, just an empty milk jug. I will be patient.
I will take fingerprints of all the family members to see who left the milk jug on the counter. Then I will pull prints off of the milk jug. Whoever is responsible for leaving the empty milk container will have to throw it away.
Or, I can just toss the empty milk jug in the recycling bin, keep smiling, and not be a fool.
I won’t let an empty milk container ruin my day. Nope, not me. Not today.
Would you let an empty milk jug on your kitchen counter ruin your day?
Please let me know in the comments. I would love to talk about the milk jug and all the little things in life we let ruin our days.
