I was running some errands, and needed to get some salsa. Jacob loves salsa and we were out of it. I went to get the White Corn and Black Bean salsa because he likes it. Today, it was on the top shelf, and pushed all the way back. I am short. I stood on the tips of my toes, and reached. I could not even touch a jar. So I took a few steps back to survey the scene. Would the bottom shelf or two be sturdy enough to hold mee? How much would I get hurt if it would not hold mee? Does Jacob really need salsa?
At this point another shopper man came over and asked if I would like some assistance. I admitted it would be great. He got on his toes (also not that tall). Reached and pulled down the first jar he could get. It was covered in dried/sticky salsa. He offered to get mee a clean one. I appreciate that even people who don’t know mee also want clean products. He asked if there was anything else I needed. I told him there was not and thanked him. The teenage boy with him was “patient,” his body language indicated that this is a regular occurrence with his dad(?). It made mee tear up as I walked on to find bread. They were happy tears. I am so glad to know that people are still willing to help a person they do not know, and (at least by example) are teaching the next generation how to be kind to others.
Thank you kind sir, you are a gentleman!
