Lately, at work, we cashiers are being encouraged to ask our customers if they would like to apply for a store credit card. That's fine, I'll do it. What gets me is the manager at the front line informed us 'Whoever gets the most apps gets to throw a pie in my face.' What? Why in the world would I want to throw a pie in someone's face? I know, I'm a fuddy duddy that way, but seriously. I don't get the whole pie-in-the-face thing. I just don't understand the appeal. I like to have fun as much as the next guy, in fact, I think I'm a really fun chick! I go out and do stuff, and have a lot of fun! I like to think that when my kids are older, they will say, 'Mom knew how to have fun when we were growing up.' I hope they add 'and she hasn't slowed down yet!' LOL
Thing is, I just wish more people were nice. I truly think nice is underrated. I try to be nice. Seriously. I think if we were all nice to others, the world would truly be a better place. Now, don't get me wrong, there are times when I'm not so nice. Nobody's perfect, and man, you know I'm not. But I just think that if we try to be nice, and if we are nice, others are nicer to us. Smile and the world smiles back kind of thing, you know? Do unto others, and you catch more flies with honey, all that. I think there is no greater compliment anyone could give me than that I am a 'nice lady'. Please God, help me be a nice lady.
So I don't get the pie in the face thing. Or the shave the guy bald thing. I mean seriously, why is that fun. I mean, reward me with chocolate, I'm happy. Tell me you'll give me a bag of Hershey Kisses. That'll do it. I know, I can buy my own Hershey Kisses any time I want to, but they taste so much better when they're a gift, don't they? LOL
Y'all have a nice day.
