More Random Acts of Kindness

I was going to write about the fact that a co-worker gave
me a really nice compliment... which of course, is a really
nice thing to do. But the thing that really surprised me
today was after work I stopped to get gas for my car on the
way home. I went inside to pay cash, and as I was walking
out a man who worked there simply said "See you later"... I
looked around, he was smiling at me, and so I returned it
by saying "thanks.. have a great day" and smiled back.

I told myself a few years ago that I am going to try to
compliment atleast one person a day.. not necessarily
someone I know. Could be a complete stranger! When I was
working for the brokerage industry it was easy because I
went to the bank every day, so I could see people at the
bank I could use this on. Of course it has to be something
about their appearance, because you can't exactly walk up
to a stranger and say "Hey you're a really nice person!!"
LOL They'd think you were a raving lunatic (which I am...
but we can get into that another time).
So I guess what I'm trying to say is, this guy didn't
exactly compliment me, but the fact that he went out of his
way to talk to a stranger really meant a lot to me, and the
drive home was a happy one.

Love to sillystring and playdo,
