Uncommon Sense

Sometimes I think that people do not have the two C’sCommon sense and Courtesy.

I say this because there have been several times when strangers have asked for a drink from the water bottle that I carry in my backpack’s outer pocket.

I always give it to them, happy in the knowledge that I could help someone quench their thirst.

However, most of the times, an alarming 85% at that, people empty my whole bottle of water leaving not even a drop for me! I have to then wait till I get home or to my office to fill my bottle and satisfy my own thirst. I do not like asking for water from others unless I’m desperately thirsty (which is rare for me).

It is basic common sense and courtesy to leave at least a little amount of water for the person who has given it with a good heart.

I don’t know how these people can be fine with completely finishing someone else’s water. How does it not strike them that the person giving them water needs to drink too!?

I’ve experienced this so many times that I now pack my bottle inside my backpack. I don’t mind sharing my water but I do mind someone senselessly, inconsiderately, and uncourteously finishing all my water.

Have you ever experienced the same? Do you too mind people acting like this?
