Don't bother people - you might need them later on.

Yes, this happened to me.

So this guy who is extremely annoying came up to me during lunch.
"Hey, Soraya...where are you going?"
"I walk this way so I can walk with Lisa. But I already missed her."
"Can you please do me a favor?"
"Excuse me?"
"Yeah. Please?"
"What is it?"
"Can you go to Ms. P's with me to play a board game? If you play, you get extra credit, and I'm at 88% in my grade. It will take five minutes, I swear."
"Okay. But, you can never be annoying again."
"You know I was just messing with you, right?"
So the game takes about 15 minutes of my valuable lunch time.

You know, if that was someone else, they could have laughed at his face?
But I didn't. Because I'm nice. I believe that he will be nicer, too, but even if he doesn't, I won't care. The reason for that is because it shows him that I am the bigger person.

I felt good about that. And my grade was on the borderline, too.

  1. It's one of the biggest lessons in life. In Korea there's a proverb that says no one can spit at a smiling face. So even if you dislike someone, a stranger, whatnot, it's always beneficial for them to have a good impression on you. You can utilize that to your advantage later on. :)
