I recently flew on Southwest Airlines. Their slogan used to be Fly For Peanuts. The other airlines quit giving complementary peanuts to their passengers years ago. But not Southwest.
I was given a bag of peanuts and another bagged snack of various kinds on each of the flights I recently took.
Except my last one. It was an early morning flight and peanuts for breakfast didn’t entice me, so I politely said no thank you. The flight attendant continued down the aisle of the cabin passing out peanuts and BelVita breakfast bisquits to each passenger as she went.
It wasn’t long before here she came again with a trash bag picking up the peanuts from those folks who had not yet eaten theirs. I did not have any, so she didn’t ask me for mine. Therefore I did not hear why they were being recalled.
Inquiring minds want to know. Why were they being thrown away? And how many people already had eaten them? I saw no rush to the aircraft lavatory. I wanted to know. But I had not partaken in the peanut frenzy, so it really was not my business to ask why.
Have you ever wanted to know something that really was none of your business?
Being nosy. Sticking your nose in someone else’s business is just plain wrong. We’ve all been guilty of doing it from time to time. But that does not make it right.
Let’s all spend our time wisely. Let’s worry about our own affairs, not someone else’s. And I’ll leave you with a little friendly bit of advice, if any of you are flying on Southwest ant time soon, you might just want to check your peanuts’ expiration date.
Interfering in someone else’s argument is as foolish as yanking a dog’s ears. Proverbs 26:17
Love and laughter,
