Sometimes all you need is a little something from a friend to really make your day. I received an email with a little surprise at the end:
P.S. You are the best. Like seriously — I have so much faith in you as a person and a friend. You are so supportive and so friggin’ good at what you do.
I keep reading this little tid-bit and think about how lucky I am to know the people I do.
I was at Target the other day trying to find an air conditioner, this was my fifth stop, to cool down my apartment during that stretch of 90+ degree days last week. I found one, but had trouble lifting it into my cart. After struggling for a solid five minutes I finally got it into my cart. After paying I was trying to figure out how I was now going to get this massive thing out of my cart, and into my car. As I popped the trunk and struggled again to get the cart to stay still while I tried to get a hold of the box, a woman and her son walked up to my car. She asked if I needed help, and before I could even say yes, she was already directing her son to hold the cart as she grabbed for the box.
Small gestures like this one always seem to amaze me because I feel like I’m very rarely touched by kindness like this.
Let us know what you think!
Say something nice to a complete stranger. You never know how you might turn someone’s day around.
We played a show at Lovejoy’s. The next morning I was hungover, sleep deprived and had 8 dollars to my name. I go to the nearest gas station by our hotel. Grab an energy drink and ask for a pack of smokes. The girl behind the counter is listening to really loud rap, its cool, I like rap. She says “that’ll be 7.50” I pull my money out of my pocket, its only 3 dollars! “Oh no” I think, I must have spent it on tacos, now I’ll be smokeless in Texas. An older woman taps me on the shoulder… “excuse me sir, you dropped this” She hands me my five dollar bill. I’m ecstatic! “Thank you so much!” I say, and hand the cashier the money. The girl replies “Welcome to Austin, hope you enjoy your stay” And I did enjoy my stay, very much. Kind strangers down there.
