I decided that I wanted to send letters to each of my students. This would require me to get cards and postage. I probably could find the 50 or so cards in my basket of stationary in the basement. So stamps are all I need to get.
I thought, let me try some smaller store.
Walgreens - sold out.
FedEd - they don't sell stamps (duh- it's FedEx!)
OK, so I decided to bite the bullet and go into Walmart. Deep Breath.
I decide, I am not taking a cart. I don't really want to touch anything, I just need stamps. Of course when I got in, I decided to walk past the meat section, it was bare. I was lucky to find some chicken. I grab the chicken and decide to get cards just in case I can't find them at home. I don't want to have to go back.
There are two people in front of me in line. The woman checking out wasn't sure if she could afford the package of meat. She asked the cashier to hold it while she got money. I got the feeling she worked there. I thought that I could offer to pay for her food, however, the woman in front of me told the cashier to just give it to her. She would pay for it. It was so nice of her!
The woman was so grateful and appreciative. She was so happy that she hugged the woman who paid. SHE HUGGED HER. I just about fell over and thought NOOOOOOO, that's against the rules! Just say thank you!! That was when I gave the guy behind me the side eye to make sure he stayed feet away from me! I bought my stamps and got the heck out of there!
