Wonderful Story : 2 Negro in the Lift
After spent wonderful long holiday for 2 weeks, now i am back doing my activity again. I have been stopped blogging for two weeks. And now is the time to blogging again. I read some interesting story today. It’s about perspective. Some people frequently think negative ways and get into trouble they should not experience. I picked this story from one of “Chicken Soup For The Soul” book. This story will teach us about how important to think positive ways in our life. I also have similar experience, and i realize how important positive thinking is. Happy reading…
Recently at Atlantic City, U.S., there was a woman who won a basket of coins from a slot machine. Then she intended to have dinner with her husband. However, before she drop the basket of the coin in her room, she headed to the elevator.
When she entered the elevator, there were two black people in it. One of them is very big. . . Verryyyy Bigg. The woman froze. She thought, “These two are going to rob me.” Her next thought was, “Do not accuse, they seemed nice and friendly.“
But a greater sense of racial began dominated her mind. She feel so frightened and then she stood and stared at the two men. She was very frightened and embarrassed. She hoped they did not read her mind, “but God, they must know what I think!” To avoid eye contact, she turned to face the elevator doors that began to close. Second. . . two seconds. . . and so on. Her fear increased! The elevator was not moving! It gets worse! “Oh God, I’m trapped and they will rob me.” Her heart pounding.
Then, one of them said, “Hit the Floor” (Press floors). Because of her panic, the woman lay on the floor of the elevator and make the coins scattered from the basket. She prayed, take my money and spare my life.
A few seconds passed. Then she heard one of the men say politely, “Ma’am, if you want to tell us what floor you’re going, we’ll push the button.” That man are somewhat difficult to pronounce the words because refraining to laugh. The woman lifted her head and saw two men. They also help the woman to stand up. “I was telling my friend to press the elevator button, not telling you to lay on the floor of the elevator,” said the other man.
He pursed his lips trying not to laugh. She was thinking, “Oh my God, how embarrassed I am. How I should apologize to them because I thought they were going to rob me. ” They were collecting the coins back into the basket. When the elevator arrived at her destination floor, they intend to take the woman into her room because they feared the woman was not able to walk along the corridor. Arriving at the front door, two men said good night, and she heard two men laughing very hard all the way back to the elevator.
She was then dressed up and met her husband for dinner. The next morning roses sent to her room, and in every rosebud there are folds of ten dollars.
On the card is written: “Thanks for the best laugh we’ve ever done.”
