My living is not in vain
When I got off work, I decided to swing back by there just to see if there were a few pizzas left at that price to pick up. Sure enough, there were tons of pizza and I got a few of them and then thought that we needed bread, so I picked that up too. While I was walking down the aisle where the bread was, an elderly gray-haired white lady in one of those wheelchair scooters from the store rolled up near me and said, "Excuse me, can you tell me where the frozen dumplings are." I said, "Well, I think they are over on the next aisle" and I pointed over to the freezer section where I thought they were. She rolled on over to the other side and I was leaving the bread aisle about to go and check out. As I walked passed the freezer section, I saw the elderly lady still rolling and glancing in the glass doors of the freezer section.
I backed up and turned around and went to her and said, "Looks like you haven't found them yet." She said, "No, I haven't found them yet." I looked into this elderly lady eyes and all I could see was if that was my mother and needed help. I said, "Well let me look for them for you." I told her that she didn't have to move and that I would find the dumplings for her. I also told her that I'm guessing I would find them either by the pie crusts or the biscuits. As I was looking down by the pie crust, the elderly lady was parked (no pun intended) by the biscuits and she said, "Ma'am, I think I see them." Oh cute it was someone who could have probably passed as my great-grandmother calling me ma'am. So I walked on down and sure enough I found the frozen dumplings that was located on the very top shelf and I opened the glass door, reached up and got a pack down for the elderly lady. I asked if she needed more than one and she said that one was fine. She thanked me and we both went on our way. That was a good feeling.
