Put it back! Please . . .

I get so infuriated when I see misplaced products in a grocery store. These are the items someone has decided they no longer want and just put back on a shelf, wherever they happen to be at the time.

How inconsiderate is that? They have no respect for others. It is the kind of thinking that shows me that person has no character or integrity and they live by the code that if no one is looking, then it's okay. Well, it isn't!

Like anything we do in this life, the right thing is always harder than the wrong thing. And, as a bonus, the result of doing the right thing is so much better.

Fortunately, most people choose to do the right thing. But I wonder sometimes if we are losing ground and the majority of us "do-gooders" is facing a declining membership.

Life is not about what's easy, it is about doing the right thing.

Oh, so maybe, just maybe, more and more people are confused about that what right thing is. That could explain it. If young people are not learning the "right" thing from family, friends, school, and role models, then the things they are learning is what they perceive as right.

Keep an eye out and help set the right example for people to learn and aspire to. Let's stay the course. If you decide you don't want something at the store, put it back where it belongs. Someone else might not see you, but you will. And you will know. Thank you.
