A Nice Story

Here’s a nice story that happened to me today.

An elderly gentleman approached me by the gas station store today.

“Hi! Are you in the teaching profession?” he asked.

“Yes,” I said. “But how did you know???” (I was dressed completely normally and I don’t do bumper stickers).

“I’ve lived a long life and I’m a good judge of character,” the elderly gentleman said. “I just wanted to tell you that you do an important job that is crucial to our society. I know it must be hard right now but it will get better! You will go back to the classroom.”

My nerves aren’t great right now because of isolation, so I almost had a nervous breakdown I was so touched.
