Somebody* on life learning
Allegedly, Maya Angelou said this but this is disputed. And given her history with misattributed quotes, I’m inclined to think she didn’t say this. But that doesn’t stop it from being interesting:
“I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.”
I thought about how I would react in those situations and it does say a lot about me: calm except when I’m incredibly anxious because someone asked me to do something specific in those situations.
