I took my youngest two to Wal-Mart one morning to get some grocery shopping done while my older two were somewhere else. I woke up feeling a bit off, like I didn’t get enough sleep or something, so I was trying to rush through the store. I’m not sure what I ended up with, but it was a cart full.
I scanned the check out counters, looking for one with the light on and nobody waiting. Finally, all the way to the end I found one where there was only one person, and she was almost through.
I had loaded most of my things on the counter when the checkout lady said, “I’m sorry, but I’m closed.” A myriad of thoughts went through my mind in that split second. I was NOT happy. I looked up at the light that I could have sworn had been on, but sure enough it was off. Then I looked back down at all the groceries on the counter.
I wanted to pitch a fit, but I was just standing there dumbfounded, when the lady said, “Just kidding!” After a few minutes she told me that she had been trying to make me smile, but that I laughed so hard I actually made her day! I’ve always wondered what happened with the next customer she tried that on!
