Not Toying Around With Their Christmas Spirit, Part 2

| Right | December 22, 2015

Customer: “These two here are separate.” *places two items at the end of the belt*

Me: “Okay, not a problem!”

Customer: “I have a question though. I’m not sure if I can do this. Do you know [Coworker]?”

Me: “Yes, I know her.”

Customer: “Well, I’d like to purchase these and leave them for her. Is that something I can do?”

(At this point I assume she knows or is related to my coworker, so I say yes.)

Customer: “Oh, good. I don’t normally do this, but she was just so helpful with finding what we needed and she said she wanted to get something for her young son, but they’re so pricey that she can’t afford it. So I thought I would get her a couple of things for her son.”

Me: “Wow, that’s incredibly kind of you! That’s wonderful.”

Customer: *looking slightly embarrassed* “Oh, no, it’s nothing really. It’s hardly anything. Just a couple things.”

Me: “Well, I think it’s very kind of you. She will be very happy. Would you like to leave a note for her too?”

(She agrees to write a little note that says:)

Note: “Enjoy your time with your son. You were so helpful with these! Have a Merry Christmas!”

(As soon as she leaves, I take it up to my supervisor, who calls her up to the service desk without telling her why. When she comes up, we explain what happened.)

Coworker: “What? Are you serious? This is amazing! I don’t even know what to say! I love my job! This is amazing!”

(Later, both my supervisor and I agree that we both almost teared-up a little bit to see how happy she was. It’s so nice to see generous people this holiday season!)
