I used to be an impatient person and always want things to be done now. It was never later. I loved to complete what ever task given, fast, so that I have more time to relax and do the things I love. However, no matter how impatient I used to be, the sound of a crying baby or whining of a dog or cat never annoy me. Even when I was still single.
I used to think that once a person starts a family and start to have kids, they some how mellow down and stay calmer than before but found out that is not the case.
A friend of mine told me that her husband can't stand the sound of their toddler crying or whining. She always have to coax her two toddlers and keep them quiet when ever her husband is around. Once, on a trip, they need to travel a few hours by car and her three year old son start whining. The husband asked my friend to shut him up, but she failed. After twenty minutes or so, her husband pull the car to the side, open the back door and asked the son to leave the car.
Oh mine, on the highway, in the middle of no where? And I thought all adults, once become parents, they automatically have that parents instinct to love and protect their kid no matter what.
Guess that is also what prompt an inpatient person to pour hot water at stray dogs and cats. They just could not stand the whining and barking etc. Poor strays, all they wanted was to beg for some food and love. It that too much to asked for.
I even have neighbors who trained their young children to sit still the whole day, doing nothing, and is so proud that they succeed. No wonder they didn't do well in school when they were older. No exploration, learning, interacting and social skill and yet the parent could still complain to others as to why other children are so cheerful, intelligent and charming compare to her's.
To me babies, puppies and kittens are suppose to be playful with a little crying and whining. Unless they are born dumb and mute. Never could understand how cruel this world could be.
Thanks for reading and I hope the world would be a better place tomorrow with more kind people.
