made my day

a quick stop at the market this evening to stock up on milk and tea in anticipation of the new year's first snowstorm. when i inadvertently left my keys on the counter and turned to leave, a kindly old gentleman in line behind me touched my shoulder, nodded towards the keys and said you'll be needing these...  and then he called me miss.

i guess it's all relative. thank you, sir.

Hold onto that feeling. Keep it as a memory. Kindness is a rarity these days.

Here anybody above eighteen gets called ma'am, so chances of being called miss are very slim.

It is sweet to receive an unexpected kindness, isn't it? I get tired of being called Ma'am- it'ds only started within the last year or so for me. A little "Miss" now and then is really nice!

It's always nice when someone restores your faith in mankind!
