I served a lot of customers yesterday.
Actually I've served a lot of customers all week.
Where are all you people coming from?
We checkout people barely have time to take a sip of water in between customers lately.
This type of rush usually happens closer to Christmas..............
Anyway, back to yesterday.
One customer in particular stood out from the crowd.
A young woman, maybe 20 or so........
Her face was so alive with joy and excitement
She had the biggest grin and was doing little happy dance jigs while I processed her goods.
I said to her, "you look a little excited"
And she replied, "I am, I've just bought a Christmas tree and I can't wait to get home to it".
Me: Is it your first Christmas tree?
Customer: yes, my partner and I have just moved in together.....
Well, that certainly explained the happy dancing!
New relationship, new home together, first Christmas tree....
I wish them well, I truly do.
I remember that kind of excitement.
