The holidays tend to bring out the best or the worst in people! Long lines at grocery stores, sold-out products at the mall, and sometimes even expensive road trips are all part of the deal when you’re looking forward to a holiday. With so many people getting time off, the most peculiar things just might end up happening! For two coworkers, something very strange walked in the door of their shop on a busy afternoon – and they were so glad that this happened!
(It’s Valentine’s Day and we’re packed with people buying candy and flowers. A woman dressed in black and pink comes up to the register with a bag of Hershey kisses. She’s wearing small pink faerie wings strapped to her back.)
Me: “So, you just winging it today?”
Faerie Lady:*laughs and tears open the bag of candy* “Here!”
Faerie Lady:*drops a handful of Hershey kisses on the counter* “Now you can say you got kisses from a stranger on Valentine’s Day!”
(She then giggled and skipped off into the store, stopping once to give my coworker gathering carts a few more pieces of candy and repeating what she said to me. She must have waited 45 minutes, just so she could buy some candy to give to strangers. Kinda made my day.)
Being so busy during a holiday rush is enough to make anyone feel the pressure! The workload doubles overnight, the stockroom empties faster than it can be filled up again, and sometimes the customers are just too rude. But then there are people like this woman who are determined to bring a smile to everyone’s faces – spreading joy and cheer and happiness with a few candies and a few kind words. This is such a fun way to spend a holiday!
