Speaking of what kinds of trails do we leave. I had a little test on Tuesday.
As April and I were leaving Stein Mart, yes, I was in Stein Mart again! 🙂 We went to Hobby Lobby and I couldn’t be that close and not go in. They are just around the corner from each other.
We got in the car and I was backing up and my beeper started beeping that something was behind me. I stopped and turned around as a young couple were walking around me. The man was laughing, but the girl was obviously very angry. She must have thought I was trying to run over her on purpose. Anyway, she acted like she was going to hit my car as she was muttering all kinds of interesting things. I waited for them to walk on by and I waved and smiled at them. Her look was even more angry. So, I rolled down my window and waited for her to look at me as she was getting in her car. She finally glanced my way to give me one more dirty look and I smiled and said “I am so sorry, I didn’t see you at all, please forgive me!” The countenance on her face immediately changed. The man looked at her as in shock and she smiled back and said “that’s o.k.” I waved and she quickly said “just watch what you’re doing next time.” I said “I sure will.” smile smile.
How easy it would have been to give dirty looks back and think all sorts of mean things, but thankfully, I didn’t.
The most important part is it was a great lesson for a little 7 year old that watched the entire episode. 🙂
