When left to my own devices, I tend to wander while grocery shopping. Drop me into a Target or Walmart and watch out, there’s no telling what will end up in my cart.
Today’s impulse purchases included 25 mini-pumpkins, some pipe cleaners and a little early Christmas shopping. What? The LEGOs were on sale!
Rolling up to the checkout I saw only one aisle open with an actual person working the till. I like self-checkout for a few items but today’s spree couldn’t fit in one bag.
An older woman stood behind me in the growing line that I might add was moving as quickly as running in thigh high mud.
“Go ahead,” I motioned to step in front of my loaded cart.
“Oh, thank you!” She must have seen my pumpkins.
Isn’t random kindness simply common courtesy?
