What a difference a line makes

Today my son and I were checking out at Walmart and we had the nicest cashier help us. She said “hello darling” in the most buttery, southern accent, talked about how wonderful the day was and wished us well as we gathered our bags.

As we were leaving the store, we were talking about how nice she was. She just left you feeling GOOD like a big, warm hug. Then, we overheard a conversation from the people exiting behind us. They were complaining that their cashier was super rude and saying that if she didn’t like her job that she should quit. Of course, my son and I noticed and he started laughing at the irony.

It was a wide open teaching opportunity for me as a parent to teach him that no matter what type of job you have or where you are in the world, having contact with people can leave them either feeling good or bad. I also had a moment to let him know that he didn’t have to have a big, high paying or famous job to make an impact in the world.

We then calculated that if she spent 5 minutes with people at a time for 8 hours a day, she would directly impact almost 100 people who, when going out into the world feeling good, could impact even more people.

Let’s not define how we can change or impact the world by how big our job, healing center, corporate presence or MLM line is or how many FB likes we get. Let’s just remember that kindness in every interaction can make much more difference than you think.

I know the next time I’m in that store, I’m going to wait in her line!
