I was in the grocery store the other morning very early, it was just me and the food stockers it was so early. I happened to be in the bakery section were a man was arranging a pumpkin and wine display. He was very apologetic for blocking the aisle with three huge wine barrels. I replied "no problem," I left my cart and navigated the obstacle course on foot to get to the peanut butter.
I frequently make small talk with strangers, just being nice, and today was no different. My kids frequently ask me, "mom do you know that person?" as I tend to start conversations with people I don't know, no I don't know them, just me being friendly. I said "hello" to the wine guy setting up the pumpkin and wine display (at the time I didn't know he was a wine distributor). During our quick conversation I asked him where he got the wine barrels from and if I could buy one? He explained that he worked for a local winery and yes they sold them at the winery. I thanked him for the info., tucked it away for a future "project," and wished him a great day. As I was leaving he waved me over and asked if I wanted one? I thought he was trying to save me a trip to the winery to buy one, but no he was asking if I wanted one for FREE.
He even loaded it in the car for me.
Getting it out of the car and in to the backyard by myself was fun.
Can I count that as my workout for the day?
I love it!
I have NO IDEA what I should do with it?
Got any ideas?
I would love to hear them!
This wouldn't have happened if I hadn't stopped to say "hello." Has just being your friendly self ever come back to you in ways you never expected?
I'd love to hear your story.
It's nice to be nice.
Thanks for checking it out.
