Today on my flight to Houston a lady sat down next to me in the middle seat. As soon as she sat down she began rifling through the magazines in the seat pocket. I assumed she was getting ready to do some shopping. Instead she was frantically looking for the "throw up" bags that are usually there.
My instant reaction was "great - if she's looking for this already - I'm going to be in for a long flight".
I am also almost phobic in my reaction to "throw up". I can handle most things but not that, so the idea that she could be sick on the flight was horrifying to me!
Only a few minutes into the flight she began to get sick. As I was feeling sorry for myself for having the bad luck of sitting next to her I suddenly thought about how she must be feeling. She kept apologizing profusely so I know she felt bad, she was likely embarrassed, and she was probably feeling like crap physically.
Suddenly I realized that this poor woman was going through much worse than having to sit next to someone who was ill. She was the someone who was ill.
Maybe if we all could take a minute to empathize with each other we would be much more tolerant of human frailities.
