Prejudice January 21, 2010

Filed under: Monolog — visitor74 @ 11:47 pm

I must confess that I have the bad habit of having prejudice on people before I got to know them better. it could be the way they talk, dress or their general outlook. I know it’s bad but I can’t help it.

I got this Neighbour of mine that I cannot bring myself to mingle with. he is selling burger nearby my the junction to my house. his house is probably a hundred metres away. every morning, his wife sells breakfast. I don’t go to his burger stall or buy breakfast from his wife because I don’t like him.

his demeanor does not look friendly and judging from my wife’s encounter with him, it doesn’t get any better. everytime I passed him, I never bat an eye to him, in a way showing displeasure to him.

what bothers me is that he’s my neighbour. what happens if and when I need his help one of these days? and what would he tell the other neighbours about me? he’s an old timer over there so he’s a senior so to speak. he might have clout in the neighborhood.

Islam tells us to be good to our neighbor. but I can’t say that I’m following that advice.
