The smallest thing can and often does make my day.
I was on a routine trip to Kroger and since it is the Kroger Marketplace, it is very large with many things in and around it. One of the things is a jewelry store. But first things first.
I had gone in to get lettuce which was easily seen and some Oscar Meyer bacon pieces. I could not find them so I asked an employee who took me allllll the way over to where they were. I was very grateful as I had done my mile in a manner of speaking, looking for them. She was cheerful as well as helpful. A credit to the store. Then, as I had purposefully brought two watches with me; one needing a battery and one needing a crystal, I went to the jewelry store. Remember when I said a dishonest person at another jewelry store while changing the battery, broke the crystal of my favorite watch and lied saying *I* had to have broken it. I was mad but sad as well as it is one of my favorite watches. And a crystal, just a plain every day one, not sapphire, is 70 some dollars. So I left it there at the new jewelry store I have just spoken of to be repaired and get a battery replaced in another favorite watch. She held the one with a broken crystal a long time and admired every detail of the watch's face. It is a Mercury dime. Usually I dislike seeing US coinage used as jewelry as I am a very serious collector. It is defacing the coin to use it for jewelry to me. However, I sunk to a new level when I saw this watch. Sterling silver, except the back piece and of course silver Mercury dime inside. Thick black watch band. Had to have it so about 18 years ago, I caved and bought it. The employee held it the longest time and said how awesome it is, the watch, and I agree every bit with that. Made my heart glad that someone else appreciated it. So, that was the second of two events that made my afternoon. My experience there at the jewelry store and the Kroger employee made two events. AND for new customers, the first watch battery is free! Beat THAT with a stick, why don't 'cha?
Then, the owner of this one came over, and engaged me in at least 10 minutes of the most fun conversation. Made my afternoon,,,the Kroger associate and the jewelry store employee and owner.
Sure makes up for the bad clerk who shattered my watch face and lied. Different store of course and they said of that happens they will make it good.
Just enjoying my day after a few days of being a bit sad. xoxo
