this morning as I was taking the garbage containers to the curb just
before leaving the house to go to work , my new neighbor, this older
lady, sees me as she leaves her house and she approaches me. She says: " Looking through the trash? Do you need a meal?" Me - "No. I live here. Hi, my name is Alieux." Older lady- “You do? Since when?” Me- “Almost 6 years.” Older lady - “ I didn’t know-“ Me- “Didn’t know what?”
Older lady, looking nervous – “well, it’s so quiet. I’ve been here for a
month now and I haven’t heard any loud rap music or bass through the
walls or coming from any cars. You must work the night shift.” Me- “ OMG, the last thing I need is a stupid old racist living right next door to me.” Older lady- “I’m not racist. I love you people. I hear about you on the news all the time but I never lived next door to one.”
I really struggle to be respectful to the elderly, and so I left before sinking down to her level and verbally tearing her to shreds.
God lover here. When I'm not being frisked by the police, I'm trying to bounce 12 balls in the air at once- Love, Truth, Giving, Charity, Faith, Humour, Humility, Coping, Resilience, Fairness, Sadness, and Happiness, all while breathing and living as best a Christian life as I can. I have no time for hatred, whining, fake people, liars, indifference, those without any passion, or goals. I try my hardest to surround myself with people who will push me and inspire me to be a better person, and I’ll return the favor.
