At Caribou this morning Nonny and I spilt an entire cup of coffee while navigating the “add cream and sugar” part of the transaction. Very quickly two gals jumped in to help, with napkins and a little towel that one of them asked staff for. Between us we wiped and wiped and eventually got it all cleaned up. I thanked them profusely and asked them if they would come later to my house and do my kitchen floor. One of them stopped at our table a bit later as she was leaving to say “have a nice day” and Nonny was surprised to realize that she wasn’t an employee. I said they were both just innocent helpful bystanders – which had made me all the more thankful at the time.
What the last kindness someone did for you?
