The cashier said to the woman in front of me, “If you spend $8 more dollars, you get a free turkey!”
The woman looked at me and woman behind me and said, “I don’t want to hold up the line!” We both yelled, “Get that free turkey!” The cashier ran for the turkey, the woman’s husband ran for $8 worth of pot pies and the woman behind me exhaled, “I’m just happy to have 5 minutes where I don’t have to do anything.”
After the mission was accomplished, I gave turkey-lady a high-five. Then the woman behind me wanted one. The cashier high-fived all of us.
So naturally, because of this, I’ve started high-fiving pretty much everybody. I think it’s a positive and contagious gesture – and heck, we all need a little encouragement sometimes, don’t we?
Please accept this virtual high-five, and if you’re so inclined, pass it on.
Oh yeah … if you need help writing copy that’s even better than a free turkey, I’m your gal. Happy 2017!
