I went to the grocery store today to buy some overpriced produce and bread and I was kind enough to let a woman cut in front of me. She only had one item. It was a bouquet of flowers. She took longer than I expected. She was asking for some sort of stamps and the cashier had to run back and forth between registers to find them. I wasn’t quite sure what was going on, but I was definately losing my patience due to some hunger pains. The cutterlady apologized for inconveniencing me and I responded with a half-hearted “that’s OK.” At the end of the whole scenario she turned to me and said “thank you so much…now the world owes you one”. I thought it was such an interesting thing to say to someone. I’ve never heard that before. Does the world really owe me one now that I’ve done my good deed? I would like to think so. But to expect something in return would be downright foolish.
