Have you ever struck up a conversation while you have been in line at the supermarket? I have many times. (It helps having run a cash register and knowing the time limitations.)
Today I was at Costco and there were two lines. The Japanese lady in front of me had a big bag of death AKA Snack Size Snickers. She switch to another line because it looked quicker. But when it looked like my line was going to be faster I motioned to her to go ahead of me.
In a short space of time we talked about Snickers. I told her I have no self control so I never buy them anymore. My problem is if I buy the big bag in no time it is gone. No matter how many times I tell myself I will eat them over a few weeks, they will evaporate.
It is funny how you make connections with people. This lady was all set after she paid for her order to open her big bag of Snickers and give me a few. I laughing and politely refused but out of the ordinary kindness does makes one’s day!
