I was out and about today running errands when I stopped at Target to pick up a couple of things. My order totaled $18.95. I paid using a Target gift card I've been carrying around for a couple months.
After I was finished, I turned to the lady that was in line behind me held out the gift card and said, "I think there's a dollar left on this card and it's yours if you want it." You would not believe the reaction I got from her or the cashier! You would have thought I handed over a million dollars. They were both so surprised and happy by what I had done.
I walked away smiling and yet still thinking, " Really, people, it was just a dollar!"
Have we become such a self centered society that the gift of a dollar deserves such a surprised response? It's pretty sad if we have!
So, go there and hand someone in line behind you a dollar or whatever is left on that gift card you keep forgetting to use and make their day. Their reaction is guaranteed to make yours too.
