My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Special Salesperson

Blog Prompt: Today is National Salesperson Day. Did you ever get treated especially nice by a salesperson? If so what did they do that was so special?

Years ago we decided to go to Big Bend National Park in Texas. We had to fly to Midlands and drive to the park. We stopped in a little town to stretch our legs and I found a tshirt that I wanted to buy but the shop didn’t have it in my size. It was a white tshirt with a picture of a tarantula on the left shoulder that almost looks real. The owner/salesperson got on the phone and called another shop who had it in my size. Then she said she would be right back and left us in her store alone. We thought she was going right next door or at least close by but then we watched her walk down the street, across the railroad tracks and then out of sight. While we waited, a long train passed by and about 10 minutes later, she returned with a tshirt in my size. I couldn’t believe that she went to all that trouble for me! Not only did she walk when she could have told us to go to that other store, but she trusted us enough to leave us alone in her store. I was amazed! It was a truly wonderful experience.

HATE spiders! But I seriously want that shirt now. What a lovely experience, could make one think the world is not as bad as it comes across most of the time.
I can't remember a particular salesperson, but I try to deliver good customer service every day. (even though with my customers, it might involve "why are you still here? Go HOME!!!" and then open another bag of sweets for them. And this is me workingin a bookies lol)
I love your blog, amazing what you come up with!
Have a lovely day
