    Time For Giving And Receiving, Part 2

    | Robeline, LA, USA | Awesome Customers, Holidays, Theme Of The Month

    (My coworker, who has just gotten off shift, is leaning against the counter talking to me when an older gentleman walks in.)

    Me: *smiling* “Good evening and Merry Christmas!”

    Customer: *frowning* “Why are you here? It’s Christmas!”

    Coworker: *smiling* “Well, we don’t close for Christmas. She’s closing up shop, but I’ve just gotten off and am about to go home.”

    Customer: *suddenly grinning* “Wait right here!” *turns on his heel and goes out the door*

    Coworker: “…Okay, what was that?”

    Me: “I have no idea!”

    (The customer returns and gives my coworker a $20 bill then lays one on the counter in front of me.)

    Customer: “Merry Christmas, ladies, and a Happy New Year too!”

    (We both stare after him as he walks out, gets into his SUV and leaves. We then look at each other.)

    Coworker: “Wow, that’s the nicest thing anyone’s done all day!”

    Me: “Well, this is the season for miracles, isn’t it?”

    (I still have no idea who that man was!)
