When I was crossing the aisle in a parking lot with three friends, a man honks at my sister for walking and texting — apparently she was not focusing on walking fast enough for him. Long story short, the driver and I were cursing at each others at the top of our lungs. In front of kids. I was surprised that exchange did not end in violence.

That day could have ended differently. I hope to have learned a lesson from it.
