I normally get very uncomfortable when I am in the presence of people who constantly give excuses as to why they cannot do certain things.

I remember I was driving along the Moshi - Same route from Nairobi at a speed of 140km/h, when this little thing passed my car like I was parked.
Have you ever gone somewhere feeling like the world has conspired to frustrate you and after interacting with other people and listening to their sorry stories, you ended up feeling so ashamed of yourself for thinking you had it bad?
