Kindness Can Make Your Heart Melt

| Europe | Working | January 26, 2013

(I’m at an ice cream shop at a busy mall, though the shop is pretty empty.)

Cashier: “That’ll be [price].”

(I hand him my card.)

Cashier: “I’m sorry, but we only take cash.”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry. Could you put my ice cream aside? I’ll run to the ATM outside.”

Cashier: “But then you’ll have soup and not ice cream! Eat, and when you’re done go to the ATM.”

Me: “Are you sure? I can be quick at the ATM!”

Cashier: “No! Enjoy your ice cream! No one likes melted ice cream!”

(I finish my ice cream as quickly as possible and then go to the ATM.)

Cashier: “See? I knew you would come back!”

(Now I go to that shop every time I’m downtown—and I always remember to go to the ATM first!)
