Butting in Line

Posted on Mon, Sep 26, 2011 at 10:51 AM

You're waiting in line at the grocery store, holding two or three items. You're behind someone with a full cart, and you would have picked a shorter line but they're all like this one. Really, it's your fault for shopping on a Tuesday at a certain south end grocery store. You're not even a student, you just needed to pick up some bread & milk.

Then Mr. Full Cart looks back & asks you "is that all you have?" You nod, and he moves aside to let you go ahead of him.

That never stops being one of the simplest, nicest things to do for someone. —Will Pay it Forward
