Day 18 Of Kindness Month: Thank You Geek Squad

My husband and I went to Best Buy on Sunday to pick up his new computer.

The Geek Squad guy was amazing. He very knowledgeable and helped us a lot.

When the survey came a couple of days later I gave him a glowing review.

It ia nice to have people who value their job and are willing to whatever it takes to make you happy.

Day 20 Of Kindness Month: Skipping Today

My mom is in the hospital with Covid.

She’s OK. Just dehydrated. She fainted. So my brother brought to the ER.

Update:

She was released on Thursday evening and us doing well.

With my mom being in the hospital I am a little behind.

A lot behind.

I took notes for each day and will finish out the month.

I’m just glad she is ok.

Day 17 of Kindness Month: I Like Your Tattoo

On Saturday my husband and I were in the Sam’s Club Food Court.

The guy at the counter was having a hard time. It was really busy and you could tell he was overwhelmed.

The father and daughter that were ahead of me weren’t very nice to him. He was the only person working the counter and the line wasn’t movng fast.

But he was trying.

After he took their order the father and daughter were walking away and she told her dad it was probably going to take forever to get their food.

The guy behind the counter heard her..

I felt bad for him. It’s not his fault he was the only one behind the counter and I’m sure he didn’t want to be the only one behind the counter.

I wanted to see if I could make him smile so I told him I liked his tattoo.

I got a one second half smile and his eyes lit up.

Mission accomplished.

Businesses are short handed and I don’t think it’s going to get any better soon.

Take a minute and make someone smile or half smile today.

Day 15 of Kindness Month: A Pretty Money Flower

This was on my desk when I came into work yesterday.

Isn’t that cool?

It made my day.

My coworker , Por, gave it to me. She said it was because I checked on her during her vacation to California a couple of weeks ago.

It was a bad vacation. She was going to California for her aunt and uncle’s funeral with her husband. They had a early morning flight from Chicago which was cancelled and they couldn’t fly out til the next day. The airline lost their luggage and they had to buy new clothes in California.

Awful.

I texted her every day to see how she was doing. I felt horrible for her. To be grieving and then have to put up with the airline crap. It sucked.

Later on in the night she told me I was the only white person that talked to her in the department after she started and she really appreciated that.

She also likes that when I go to Vegas I sometimes bring her stuff back. Por likes the fan blowing on her. She sometimes uses tape to keep the flyaway strands out of her face. So when I was there last time I bought the little girl hair clips with hearts on them. They were cute and kept her hair in place.

Its awesome that I had some appreciation come back to me. I didn’t realize that my little acts if kindness meant that much to her.

But it did and for that I am grateful

Day 13 Of Kindness Month: Xe’s Birthday

It’s my coworkers birthday today.

I don’t know her very well and i rarely talk to her.

For my birthday last April, she bought me a big bag of M&Ms and a six pack of Pepsi Zero in bottles. 

That was very sweet and unexpected.

So today I’m going to kohls to get her a $10 gift card and a card.

She won’t expect a gift and that what makes it special.

Day 12 Of Kindness Month: Being Patient

My mom, my cousin Crystal, my Aunt Rae and I went out for lunch.

My Aunt Rae has dementia. It’s just starting but it’s scary. She hears one word and says a sentence that has nothing to do with what we are talking about.

I tried to be extra patient with her and talk about when her daughter and I were kids.

It was hard. She’s a stubborn woman and she gets mad if you don’t see it her way. How she remembers it.

These lunches are often hard, but I show up. It’s not my aunts fault.

This time it was a good lunch.

Sad but good.
