Yes, we can be grouchy. When you get stuck inside an aluminum tube with hundreds of people hours at a time and you are given the reigns to impart some sort of civilized environment, it can be enough to stress anyone out. Here's how to make our job SO much easier:
1) Be aware of those around you.
Thats it. Its not what you do to us, it's what you do to others. Well, yeah be nice to us too. I could go on all day about this, but I feel that I shouldn't have to.
And thought of the...week I guess...on the Olympics.
Isn't it funny that on the U.S. Olympic team we have Russian gymnasts (Nastia Luikin) African runners (Abdi Abdirahman) Laotian Badminton players (Khan Malaythong) and Japanese Judo (Sayaka Matsumoto)?? All of these athletes countries traditionally excel at those sports. How odd would it be to see a white boy born in Iowa running the 100 for Jamaica??
