This was already my goal this year and I’ve been proactively looking for these chances. I’m not posting these to brag but to give ideas.
1. Checked a wheelchair bound man out at the Grocery Store
In the evening, my local store closes all but one cash register and leaves the self-check out open. I noticed an older gentlemen in a wheelchair come up as I started to check out. He was waiting patiently for the attendant who was busy. I put mine aside when I finished and asked him if I could check him out. He was suspicious and reluctantly handed me his money in the end. I counted his change back to him after the machine rang it up and he seemed surprised but grateful.
2. Tipped the New Girl for Horrible Service
I took some friends to a local pancake restaurant the week before last and we experienced some of the worse service I’ve ever had in my life. Everything we asked for was wrong, our dishes were dirty, and the girl only half-cleaned the table. Our orders came mixed up and our tickets were confused. At first, I was miffed. The place was not that busy. Then I realized the girl was. I watched her and began to see that all of her co-workers were irritated with her. They kept giving her more to do, even their own work, and then the shift change started. It was time for her to leave but she still had us, and she still had them giving her more to do. I realized this was probably the end of her 8 or 12 hour shift, which started early in the morning then.
When it came time to leave and we discovered the ticket confusion, she left some things off of ours on purpose when she recalculated it, and I left some more for her when I paid. I hope they started treating her better, or she found a better job.
3. Paying the Difference
I also paid the change for a lady at a store a few weeks back.
