When you’re with friends and in a fun mood, you tend to get overboard. In the moment of that high, there will be times, when you just hurt some stranger (for worse if its a senior with his/her share of helplessness) with a comment or act which will give you a hearty laugh for a second. But the moment later, it will turn into sadness; you feel extremely guilty and ashamed, when your friends make you realize that you were wrong. More than that, you yourself feel that IT WAS WRONG. We know ethics, we believe in them but still sometimes we intentionally but unconsciously (in the rush of a moment) go the opposite way. Why? I don’t know the answer to the why but at least there is a humane side left that you haven’t missed the realization. A bigger question why it is so difficult to say sorry to a stranger?
