    The Light In A Polite Lite World

    | CT, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Family & Kids, Theme Of The Month

    (I work at a convenience store with a pharmacy. I’ve been working there for just about a year, and have given up completely on meeting a customer who’s nice to me. While I’m ringing people out, a boy about the age of eight or nine walks up to my register by himself.)

    Boy: *places Xbox live card on the counter* “Just this, please.”

    Me: “Sure.”

    (I ring him up and give him his total. It’s about $20.)

    Boy: “I’m sorry; I have about $15 in cash, but the rest is in quarters. Is that okay?”

    Me: *smiling* “That’s fine. Now I won’t need quarters later.”

    (The boy smiles and counts out his change. I finish the transaction and hand him the receipt with his card.)

    Me: “There you go. Have a nice day.”

    Boy: *smiling politely* “Thank you very much. You have a nice day too!”

    (He waves and smiles as he walks out. That boy restores my faith in humanity. He is now a regular at our store and I always love seeing him, still as polite as ever!)
