The Other Side of the Story - Giving People the Benefit of the Doubt

If you judge others unfavorably, you are likely to speak ill of them as well. If so, why don't you...

Sell U Phone

I was speaking on the phone when someone called me from his cellular phone. I asked him to please to wait a minute so that I could say good-bye to the person I had been speaking to on the other line. He said, "Call me back. I'm hanging up." And he did.

I thought, "How miserly can he be, asking me to call him back instead of waiting for one minute?" But when I called him back, I understood why he had been in such a hurry. "I have to speak very fast," he said. "My phone battery is about to go dead." And it did.
