The Basics

Just now I was leaving a bowling alley. On my way out I stopped at the restroom. A man was waiting outside the restroom. He was not from the U.S. It was a multi person restroom but he was waiting outside because he didn’t realize that. I indicated it was OK for multiple people to enter. He was overjoyed. Not in the “you changed my life” way. But in the “we are all human” way. So so so simple. It made me more happy than a lot of more difficult, complicated things do.

We have all done more gratifying things in life than indicate an aspect of a restroom. But sometimes it’s not that complicated. Sometimes it’s just about the basics. Maybe a lot of times.
