There are still some nice people left in the world! I was in the hardware section of Lowe's Tuesday night. Yes, I said I was done making trips there but found I still needed some things like caulking, stain and I had to have a closet rod cut. So I'm standing there, looking at about 500 different kinds of caulking and having no clue what to buy, when a handsome young man stops.
Smiling, he says, "I can see that I don't know what I'm doing look on your face, do you need help?"
"Yes please! I need caulking and have no clue which one to get."
He asked me what I needed it for. I told him. He quickly picked out five tubes of it in five seconds flat. After I'd been standing there for ten minutes staring at it.
"Can I help you with anything else?"
I glanced down at my list. And proceeded to tell him what I was looking for, and he proceeded to help me as if he had all the time in the world. All the while a smile on his face. I couldn't help notice he had the biggest brown eyes! When I was done I thanked him, and he turned and walked away. It was then I looked at him, really looked at him.
He wasn't wearing the typical orange vest Lowe's personal wear. He was wearing shorts, a tee-shirt, and had a pencil tucked behind his ear. And it hit me, he didn't even work for Lowe's! I watched him walk toward the lumber section in awe.
You just don't get that kind of thing much these days. Where a stranger will go out of his way to help you, without being asked. His kindness made me feel so good inside. Even better when I realized he was just another shopper like me.
I might just go back to Lowe's again...now:)
