Sometimes we judge people too fast without knowing anything about them, but this story may change your way of perception.
One doctor was urgently called to perform an operation on a boy, and he came as soon as he could. Once he changed his clothes, he went to the surgery block where he faced a screaming father.
Once the father of that boy saw the doctor, he started asking questions like: “why dod you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have any sense of responsibility?”
The doctor was very polite and he said he was sorry, but he came the minute he received the call. He also asked the father to calm down in order to be able to work.
“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies while waiting for doctor than what will you do??” the father yelled.
Once again, the doctor answered politely:“We will do our best by God’s grace and you should also pray for your son’s healthy life.”
“Giving advises when we’re not concerned is so easy” the father said quietly.
After a few hours of surgery, the doctor came out of the O.R happy saying that the boy survived and he said to the father: “If you have any questions, ask the nurses.”
The father was still angry and as the doctor was leaving the hall, he murmured to the nurse: “Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state.”
The doctor was not arrogant but he was in a hurry because his son died the previous day in a road accident and he was at the burial when he was called for the surgery.
“And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial,’ the nurse said as tears started running down her face.
As you can see, you should never judge anyone before you know what happened with them and what they are going through in that particular moment.
