Thanks for the shopping cart!
« on: July 21, 2008, 12:50:13 PM »
Friday I went to our neightborhood grocery store. Normally I would pick up a cart from the parking lot and take it inside to use but there weren't any on my way in. As I got inside the door and went to grab a cart an older man said "Got one here for ya...been washed and had a recent oil change so it's all spiffed up for ya."  I smiled and thanked him and asked him if he changed the tires too." He smiled back and countered with. "Rides like a dream." It did too. It was one of the newest carts in the store and didn't even veer to one side or the other when I pushed it.   :D

I live in a 90% elderly community and I had seen this gentlemen in the store before. He's always smiling, gives a friendly greeting to people and goes out of his way to help people he doesn't even know. The world needs more gentlemen like him.

more gentlemen like him and more carts like that!
Light travels faster than sound.  That's why some people appear bright until they open their mouth.
