Sitting in traffic I’m amazed at how few drivers let others in. It’s rush hour, I know, and we all want to get home. Then I start to notice other small ways that we don’t yield. Keeping our place in line when the person behind us has one item. Hoping no one stops the elevator on our way down. Impatience with servers who are busy with other customers. Checking our phone when someone is talking to us. Our collective self-absorption is a bad habit.
