After work today--2 clients and time spent on advertising--I stopped at the gas station. There was a man in a sweatsuit pushing a grocery cart outside the station. I was dressed in business pants, wearing a white button-down shirt with tie and had my cell phone clipped to my belt.
"Please don't ask me for money," I thought. I may look wealthy, but that doesn't reveal the truth that I'm scraping together each penny right now.
Then I thought, "Perhaps I'm making the same judgment in reverse. Maybe his appearance doesn't reveal the truth either and he is very wealthy."
He didn't ask for money. I appreciated the reminder not to judge folks by how they look.
