Saturday morning

I stood in line
busy in my own thoughts
when from the corner of my eye
I noticed the body language
of impatience in front of me
It is true
it is taking longer than usual
I thought
Long weekend
Holiday on Tuesday
many things to prepare
many places to go
And then this?
At the counter
A man trying to do his best
from where he was standing
a bit unsure
quite stressed
I felt a pinch in my heart
How long will he last in this job?
Why isn't there anyone supporting him more?
I smiled
He smiled back
A good reminder
We are all doing as good as we can
from where we stand
Let's drop the judgement
and take out our best smile
