Sometimes, my day is brightened just by the staff in the supermarket. I was browsing in the white wine aisle, looking for my favourite tipples. It wasn’t too busy, and one of the staff was stocking the shelves, and asked if he could help. He could! He found my new favourite sauvignon blanc in a place I wasn’t looking, and then recommended a rose (I rarely drink rose wines, largely because I never know what to buy). This was well above the level of service I expect in a supermarket wine section!
Then at the check-out, the woman packing made a nice comment on my makeshift zipper. I had tied some kitchen string to the zipper, making it much easier to grab, open and close.
Very small things, but it’s so much nicer when people are pleasant to us, and we can be kind in return.
