Daily Prompt:Break the Silence

When was the last time you really wanted( or needed )to say something, but kept quiet? Write a post about what you should’ve said.

Yesterday we went to watch live tennis, we bought our tickets in June. The day started with rain, I’m an optimist and told myself, well we still have time the skies will clear out and we will watch the match. It wasn’t our lucky day. The rain kept falling. I was tired of standing around, trying to stay dry. My daughter realized our tickets allows us to go to the lounge in case of inclement weather.

We went on the hunt looking for the lounge after about ten minutes we found the place, we walked in ,there were people sitting at tables,there were four chairs in each of these places, the ones who occupied the tables reserved two chairs for their bags and the other two for themselves to sit on.

I totally understand these people sitting on chairs which is exactly what one must do, I failed to comprehend why the other two vacant chairs were filled by their bags.Everywhere I turned around it was the same story.I wanted to let them know how mean they were,  I didn’t, I went all the way from St. John’s to Montreal to watch live tennis not to argue about lack of decency on the part of these so called hot shot elites.

I moved on further, I found a man sitting at a table with three vacant chairs, I was exhausted at that point, I built enough courage to ask him, if he was holding those chairs for someone. “No, he said you can sit on these two, but I’m holding one for my wife.”

I was glad I spoke or else, no one would offer. 🙂

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this post. There is much in life that we will be kept from unless we ask or otherwise express ourselves assertively.

    All good wishes,

    robert
