October Blogging Challenge-Thankful Friday-Day 16

I’m thankful this week for all the positive interactions I’ve experienced with random people over the last few days. Last Friday out for dinner,after a tough day/week at work, a random lady turned to Tara and I directly and said “Are you two twins? How old are you” I normally brush these people off after a few niceties. She kept on and said “Well, I just wanted to say that the two of you are just beautiful. You really are.” This was the first time I looked a random stranger in the face directly and said “Thank you. It means a lot”. 

Yesterday we were at a work lunch and it was taking Tara’s salad forever to come. Tara and I had told the staff that we would be on the same bill to consolidate checks. The manager came over, apologized, and gave us both free meals.

Today, we were at another place for lunch that normally makes us clear our own tables. Today, a manager came by and cleared our plates for us.

These were all random interactions after a particularly tough week. It’s nice to be reminded that people still value you as people and customers. 

And now, just a few minutes ago, we got super lucky again. We bought tix to London for half the price they had been selling them for the past few weeks. Seems to have been a system glitch that was on our side for once! 

What are you thankful for this week??
