Kindness Behind a Counter
Last night I went into a sandwich shop on the way to a meeting and as I thanked the cashier and turned to find a table to eat my HEALTHY (thank you Mimi and Gina!) sandwich, the cashier yelled “Wait!”. I turned back toward her and she pointed at my feet and said “Twenty”. Sure enough, I’d dropped a twenty dollar bill as I juggled a bunch of stuff trying to put the change back into my wallet. I hadn’t noticed. Thankfully for me, she had, and had a kind heart.
Kindness in a Car
A close friend named Tom recently had extra tickets to see a ball game and invited me to come along. Thank you, Tom! We were waiting in one of two parallel lines of cars (one for people with free parking passes–the one we were in–and the other for people who would have to pay $30 to park their cars). When we were only one car away from the entrance Tom remembered that he had a second free parking pass that expired that day. He honked his horn to the car next to us and I gestured to the other driver to please roll down his window. When he did, Tom asked if he would like a free parking pass. The driver gave a big smile to us as he shook his head with an enthusiastic yes. I jumped out of Tom’s car, gave it to the driver, and said he could cut in front of us so he could be in the parking pass lane. Later as we parked and walked through the lot toward the stadium, the driver and his wife found and thanked us for the kindness. It was a great way for all four of us to start the game!
