Blindsided, by Doug Bartlett
Tom, an older man, was daydreaming as he walked through the mall. He collided with a young man nearly knocking them both off their feet. The young man was very upset and began cursing at Tom. Tom responded, “I’m terribly sorry sir. I didn’t mean to …”. The young man interrupted Tom, “You stupid idiot, can’t you see I’m blind?” His ranting voice trailed off as he left. Tom calmly bent down, groping the floor until he had gathered up his dark glasses and white cane, where upon, he went humbly on his way.

Great story!!! So easy to criticize someone without realizing how much we have in common.
