There are still nice people out there....

I had a very interesting experience this morning while working at my "satellite office" at one of the thousands of Starbucks in NYC.  Earl and I were working away, well I was working and Earl was sleeping, and we were in a very loud Starbucks.  This particular store has music blasting and people talking on their phones, it is about the worst quiet work space you can find!  So as to keep up with others at the coffee shop, I decided to make a phone call.  I was talking louder than I thought (probably to talk over the background noise) and from a distance I saw a guy yelling in my direction, but I couldn't hear him.  He seemed to be upset and I assumed it was because he was singling me out for causing all the noise.  I thought nothing of it because this is New York City and people yelling at you for no reason is pretty much par for the course.  However, I was very surprised when he came up to me before leaving and said "I would like to apologize to you for my actions.  I have had a very rough morning with kids yelling, car trouble, and took out my bad mood on you." He said I appeared to be a good person and he wanted to clear the air by apologizing because I didn't deserve to be yelled at.  I thought that was one of the classiest things I have come across since moving to the city and wanted to share that with all of you.
