Hello, Mr. Chips!

, , , , | Right | May 6, 2021

After a long day, I decide to treat myself to some chips. I get my chips and pull out my bank card.

Me: “Card, please!”

Cashier: “Oh, sorry, we don’t take card.”

Me: *Stammers* “I have no cash on me, but I could run to the bank?”

Cashier: *Pushes the food toward me* “Nah, here you go. Just pay the next time you’re here.”

I thanked her profusely. I went back to pay the very next day, I felt so bad!

A Most Memorable Memory

, , , , , , | Working | CREDIT: Galadriel109 | May 3, 2021

Several years ago, my daughter and her family came to visit for Thanksgiving. Lunchtime came and the whole nine of us decided to go to a large chain restaurant. Our server came to the table without an order pad or writing instrument and asked for our order. I was confused about that, but we started to order.

Each one of us ordered, but we all ordered something special, like, “I want a cheeseburger, but can you put pepper jack instead of cheddar on it?” or, “Instead of mashed potatoes, I’d like a baked potato.”

After the last of us ordered, the waitress repeated each order back perfectly. I have a pretty decent memory, but she blew me away. When she brought our food, each order was perfect.

We found out she was going for her Master’s degree and had no family around, so she would volunteer to work holidays where people usually spend time with their families. And her memory really helped her in her studies, so she practiced at the restaurant.

Needless to say, she got a huge tip, not because of her memory, but because her service was perfect. I think she will always be in my memory.

Making Things Better One Pin At A Time

, , , , , , | Right | May 3, 2021

I work in a consignment store and we are about to close up. There are only three people left shopping and I’m checking out an older woman while the girl next to me is checking out a woman and her daughter. The little girl is looking at the pins we have displayed and is asking her mom if she can buy one. The mom says yes and the older woman who I’m checking out starts talking to me.

Woman #1: “Excuse me, how much are your pins?”

Me: “Only a dollar, ma’am, would you like to buy one?”

Woman #1: “Can you please charge me for three and let the little girl choose whatever three she wants?”

Me: “Of course, I can do that.”

I finish ringing her up and go to tell my coworker and the girl’s mother.

Me: “Just so you know, the lady who just left paid for whatever three pins your daughter wants.”

Coworker: “She did?”

Me: “Yep.”

Woman #2: “Aw, that’s so sweet.”

After the woman checks out, very appreciative, my coworker says:

Coworker: “That was so sweet of that woman. I’m glad there are still some good people in the world.”

They’ll Put You On The Right Track

, , , , , | Right | May 2, 2021

I’m traveling without my parents for the first time. I’m in the Munich train station trying to get to Berlin. I have a train booked and am waiting at the platform. I hear an announcement in German (I only speak English) but don’t think anything of it.

Five minutes after my train was meant to arrive, I start to get suspicious, so I check out the live platform information TVs and find that my train has been moved to another platform and has since departed. I am tired and near tears as I don’t know what to do!

I find my way to the information desk where several other tourists and I are shunted from person to person. The first window we line up at is closing as the operator is due for a break, so he sends us to another window, but they can’t help at all with any inquiries at the time so they send us back to the original window. After quite a few minutes of confusion, we’re finally sent to a window that can help us.

When it’s my turn, I’m still holding back tears and barely manage to explain to the lady what has happened without breaking down. She must deal with hundreds of tourists in her country who don’t speak her language, but she speaks perfect English.

She takes so much pity on me and gives me a ticket for a new train, free of charge, even with the first-class seat I paid for originally! She then very kindly points out the platform I am meant to wait at and tells me when the train will be coming and what carriage I will be in. I am in Berlin only a few hours later than expected thanks to her kindness!
