To care or not to...

One things that really irritates me is to see people line up for airplane boarding before boarding starts. Passengers are supposed to be boarded based on their seat number but no one really care. I do care and that's why Nima and I are most of the time last people who get on the airplane. This is what exactly happened to us again on the way back to Toronto. After two hours delay the boarding started. People were already lined up. After boarding the executive class, disables, etc, they asked passengers with seat number 19 or higher. Our seat row was 12 so we did not stand in a line. Nima told me to join the line he said "be sure no one really care". Anyway we waited until they call for the rest of us. when we got in, almost everyone were sit and there was no space for our "carry on" on top shelve (since people from other row put their hand bags in our shelve) thus we kept our "carry on" under our feet. I really felt bad, since it was my fault to keep Nima behind. I don't know why I am keep doing this; why I can not convinced myself not to care about these things. Sometime I feel because of this behavior of mine, we fall behind. I don't know!!

I think a main part of the problem is because people take more than one carry on per each or take really big suitcases that engage lots of spaces. Apart from that, what you do is out of your social belief system which comes from your thoughtful personality. You cannot do much about just , just accept the fact that you're a caring responsible citizen ;).

Dear Hiva,
I am on the same boat with you on this. But you know what? Unfortunately this is not a world made for people like us. We usually get behind, made fun of because we are not "smart" enough to make shortcuts, and at the end we even feel bad for making our partners share the consequences with us.

One example for me is usually trying to get somewhere on time. The thing is (particularly if there is an "iranian" event of some sort) I run and I make Mr Alchemist run, and I argue and nag and run, to get there on time, only to find out that nobody shows up earlier than 10 mintues after the time...

My motto is "if every one tries to be on time (or in your case, "follow the rules"), then everything will be alright." But not many people agree with me on that, and that just makes us feel worse...sigh.

This is the world as it is. Trying to find shortcuts, or not following the rules, or getting the results at any expense, is considered more cool and smart.
This is the reality :(

Behi: TNX you are always kind to me honey
Havas Mobham: :)So why do we have rules in first place?

Nava jan: what can I say, I really can't change in this matter. It's not like I am forcing myself to respect rules I just can't help it. That's why I am worry , Nima falls behind because of me. Actually this is one the main reason I left Iran. Anyway this is reality as you said
