By Jiminy, Where’s Your Conscience?

That guy who bumped his cart right into the checkout line in front of you and is now avoiding your eyes–give him a smile when he does look at you.

The lady who processes your driver’s license and barks out each bit of instruction to you as if you are completely inept–wish her a nice day and a beautiful tomorrow.

The neighbor who screams at your kids for walking on his lawn–invite him to stop by for a glass of lemonade sometime.

You’ll deflate their balloons immediately as they wrestle with their conscience and say to themselves: “Was that me talking so mean? I really have to work on that.”
