Free Shoes
« on: December 14, 2011, 06:52:25 PM »
I work in a small cafe-style restaurant. We have many regular customers and one particular woman came in my work recently. She's an infrequent visitor but I always remember what she orders because it rarely varies and also I have a good memory for faces. After I'd taken her order she asked me what my shoe size was. I was a little confused but said size 8. She then explained that I'd once complimented her on her shoes (Converse AC/DC high-top sneakers) and that she felt "too old" to wear them anymore and wondered if I wanted them! It was something like a year ago that I complimented her, and it's not like we even knew each other's names...I thought it was so touching that she thought of me, even though unfortunately, I had to tell her they would have been too big for me.

How nice of her!

That is really nice! And any day involving free shoes (even though you didn't actually get them) is a good day so far as I'm concerned.
