Overheard an employee of a popular car rental place talking to a patron.
He asked her “So do you like working here over the other location?”
“Yeah, I do. It’s busier so makes the day go by faster.”
I sat up in my chair.
Is that really a measure to rate your day by - how fast it goes?
We have only a finite number of days on this earth!
Do you really want it to go by as fast as possible?
Where the heck are you going in such a hurry?
I relaxed back in my chair remembering a time I once said the same thing. I was a trainer at a gym and couldn’t wait to get home. I quietly chuckled to myself because I mostly watched re-runs of Reba and took naps back then. It made the day go by faster...
Gosh, I guess I've come along way.
Thanks for the perspective.
