So I worked in the store today. I had to be there at 7:30am which is an hour and a half earlier than usual. I had to take a breakfast delivery into the city. I did the delivery and then I came back to the store. It took me about an hour and a half.
When I got back one of the women I work with, who tells everyone she is my girlfriend, asked me to pick up her some Dirty potato chips from the other store I was going to be working at for the rest of the day. I had to pick up some tape for the pricing guns and bring it back to my home store so I would be coming back anyways. So my coworker asked me to bring her the chips back with the tape when I returned.
I worked the rest of the day at the other store and then left. I realized I had forgot to get her the bag of chips and I took a second to debate on whether I should turn around now that I was already on the road. I could have told my coworker that I had forgotten about the chips and left it at that, but I decided to be kind and do her the favor she had asked me to do so I turned around and went back to the store.
They gave me an 80% discount so the chips only cost me about 30 cents. I bought them and on the way out they came after me calling my name. They said there was a delivery that needed to be done that they had forgotten about until just now. As it turns out this was a special kind of delivery which pays $30 cash when you do it. So as a result of me turning around to do a friend a favor, I ended up being rewarded by the universe by receiving more money. I didn’t do it for more money, I did it to be kind to a coworker. It just so happens that my kindness opened me up to receiving more money. Go figure!
That’s just a short story that I wanted to share with you about how kindness can pay. I hope you enjoyed it. If you would subscribe to my list I will send you updates to this blog. Make sure you subscribe!
