I was walking home from the store, minding my own business, when suddenly I heard someone honking. Naturally I looked over, thinking I might know them. It was just some kid who was flipping me off and laughing about it. Whoever was honking must have approved, because I didn't hear them say a word. What I don't understand is why a kid who's about 10, who obviously is old enough to know the difference between right and wrong, would think it's alright to do something like that. What baffles me even further is why an adult would approve of that behavior. I was angry all the way home, swearing and just feeling my blood pressure rise. I hate acting like that, but being demeaned is something that really bothers me. I am usually the target for things like that. My friend told me to ignore the negativity and let it roll off my back, but I'm not sure how to do that. Am I overreacting, and if so, how do I handle things better in the future?
