It takes all kinds....

It was 4:45 in the morning. The guy and I reached the cab-stand at almost the same time. For nearly ten minutes, there were no cabs, and when one finally arrived, we decided to both get on.
He was reeking of alcohol and cigarette smoke. Had clearly spent the night at a party that had just broken up.
I was in my running clothes, rested after a good night's sleep.
His previous night was ending. My new day was beginning.
Each thought the other insane- from their point of view, each was right. Takes all kinds to make a world.

And so it does!! You on one hand will feel much better though during your day. He will have a rough start of it. Ha!

Natasha - How right you are! It certainly takes all kinds. But that's what makes the world so interesting, isn't it?

Such an illuminating encounter!
Of course the morning walker/jogger can definitely claim moral superiority:)
