|My "win" this morning. I'll take it!|
The elderly lady was a new checker. She thought she made a mistake. I had already inserted my credit card in the chip receiving device, waiting to see the "OK" I could touch screen.
She called the manager, thinking he had done something wrong. The manager came and looked at the above screed and said "Oh, there is nothing wrong. You won free groceries today."
Hey, I'm a winner! How about that?
Always nice to win.
During the unexpected mini celebration of my win I noticed the customer behind me. His downcast fast said it all. I said to him "You missed it by one." He looked up at me and said "Hey, that's the story of my life."
My happy win this morning reminds me of this Spy TV joke that ran a few years ago.
Only difference is that I didn't win a million dollars and my win wasn't a joke. But to the guy behind me this morning, he wasn't happy. But I am! Wha a nice way to start the day.
