Random Acts of Kindness
May 12th, 2001 - 1:56 a.m.I'm Currently Avoiding:
Aesop once said a long time ago that, "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
Aesop was a damn smart guy. And it's nice to know (pardon the cliché) that some things never change. I was reminded of this whole kindness thing earlier when I was in the grocery store. I hadn't eaten anything today, so I bought a Coke, a couple pieces of pizza (their pizza is pretty nasty by the way, but everything's packed so it's not like I wanted to cook and what's open at 12:30 anyway? Besides that nasty diner place next to the movie theater that is), a candy bar, and peaches 'n creme yogurt from Yoplait (yummy!). So anyway, when I get to the checkout, the guy totally screws the ringing up of my purchases up. He tried to charge me $3.49 for a bottle of Coke! Apparently there's some issue and all bottles of Coke currently ring up as 6-packs for no real reason. But he tried to take that off, but he took off the yogurt instead. So he had to put the yogurt back on, then take off the Coke and put the right price of it in instead. Here's where the kindness part comes in. He hadn't rung up the pizza yet, and then he just put it in the bag. For some reason, I felt compelled to mention that he hadn't charged me for the pizza. He told me not to worry about it and let me just have it. He said it was a Friday and a nice night, and just let me have it. I find this astonishing. Considering this was the most expensive thing I bought, it really was amazing. Sometimes random acts of kindness are really really great things. You should try them sometime. I'm going to go nuts with my 4 & 1/2 hours of waiting or so now. Bye!
