Being Too Optimistic.
"Solomon said there was a time for everything."
remarked the tall, stout man as he came from the din
ing room of the little country hotel into the office.
And though he mav not haye mentioned it, I think
there is a time to kick, And that time is right now. A
man who serves a dinner like that ought to be arrest
"What's the matter with it?" belligerently asked
the clerk back of the counter."
"To be quite frank," replied the tall, stout man, "there was a
hair in the turnips and a fly baked in the pie crust. That's more than
enough to spoil a dinner for me."
Seveial of the diners hastily left the office.
"Now, I say." went on the tall, stout man, "that any one who
takes the contract of serving the public and then permits food to be
prepared in that way ought to be put out of business."
"We don't have any kicks on our dinners," said the clerk.
"You're the first"
"That's just it," interrupted the stout man. "People don't kick
when thev ought to kick. As I remarked, there's a time to kick. Ar.d
the time is when you run against conditions like these. People of the
town put up with your dinners. The dining room was full of what
looked like the business men of the place. But every one ought to give
you the turn down."
"There isn't any other place to go," said the clerk as if he had
clinched the argument. "This the only hotel in this town."
"There'd soon be another," said the tall, stout man, "if people
would not put up with this. But some people have such a fool notion that
they mustn't kick, that they mustn't say anything is wrong with a
place because it is knocking, that they stand for all sorts of hold-ups
rather than make a protest. There can be such a thing as too much
optimism. When a thing's black, you want to say it is black; not
take a sideways squint at it and pretend it's white, a little off color.
And until you clean up your kitchen and put a cook in tnere who has
some ideas of common decency, I shall tell everybody I know to pass
this place up for eats."
The tall, stout man went out, climbed into his automobile and
went on. The clerk looked after him scornfully. "There's a kicker,"
he said to the ciowd lounging in the office. "He'll kick when he gets
to heaven. Guess his wife threw it into him this morning and he is
taking it out on the rest of us." And then he turns to his work.
Isn't that about the way such protests are usually met ? The per
son protesting at some wrong or injustice is jeeringly called a "kick
er" or "knocker," his course looked upon with disfavor as injurious
to the community, and he cried down.
But isn't he sometimes right? Can't there be, as this man said,
"too much optimism ?"
There can be, it is true, too much tault-finding. But there can
be also, too little. What we ought to do, ougnt we nt, is to use our
judgment to see where the line should be drawn, to use our common
sense to see what faults should be righted, and to see also impartially
where there is no reasonable ground for fault-finding.
In a progressive city of the West where optimism abounds there is
a Citizen's League formed for the purpose of keeping tab on the city
government to see that the taxpayers' money is not spent foolishly
and that the various departments of the city government perform their
duties as tney should, lhe optimists of the town, and there are plenty
of them justifiably so, too. for the city is one pleasant to live in tell
you that everything about the town is all right, that no one could
have better city government, that all the municipal affairs are conduct-
ea nonestiy ana in a ousiness-iike way.. And they denominate the
members of the League as a "bunch of grouches." But the League
know that everything is not all right, though a good deal is. and thev
have facts and figures to prove it; and when the politicians try to put
any scheme through that is not for the good of the city, they are right
on tue ground to enter tneir protest and turn on the light.
Now aren't thev in the right? And aren't they really helping that
city more to ue an mat it is, man tne ones who are so optimistic that
they can see no taints and refuse likewise to look for any?
wenecu .i-ci3 or KuuciLcrs f as inose wno point out our
faults have come to be called, quite as much as we need "boosters."
That is, we need the keen, honest, friendly eye that sees when we are
going wrong quite as much as the kindly spirit that encourages. The
important point is not to run to extremes in either direction. The
continuous kno;ker is of no more value than the cheerful idiot."
