It's the little things that count...

This will be a short and random post but I just wanted to share a little thing that put a huge smile on my face yesterday.
So, I was at work which I'm finding incredibly boring and tedious. I guess I'm a little fed up of it and want something that's to do with my university degree or at least something I will enjoy but hey a jobs a job and in this economical climate anything is better than nothing.
Anyway towards the end of the day I came across two middle aged or probably a little older customers and I helped them with some things and as one of them was trying clothes on I was talking to the other lady sat waiting for her and within the conversation I mentioned how nice her necklace was which seemed to have made her smile.
I then left them to try clothes on and a while after, they had left the fitting room but she called me over and took her necklace off and insisted I have it (ignoring my pleads that I couldn't take it from her). She was even worried I'd be embarrassed or annoyed at her for giving me it (can you believe that?!)
This is the beaut below which shall be cherished. I have been wanting a spike necklace for a long time now too!
She literally made my day, I was so surprised as I honestly didn't expect that at all and obviously incredibly thankful she gave me it especially as it was something she was wearing and clearly liked. I guess this meant a lot to me as I meet nice (as well as damn right awful) people at work frequently but never in my years of working in this place someone to make such a kind and selfless gesture.
I made sure the lady knew how thankful I was and even went to find her to make sure she knew and to tell her she made my day.
I know people who work in retail will agree sometimes people can be so rude and make your day become a bad one. But yesterday was quiet the opposite, I guess it just shows there is some wonderful people out there, along with the bad.
What's the nicest thing someone has done for you at work?


  1. That is so nice of her! Gorgeous necklace too. I used to work in retail too and totally agree. I think the nicest thing someone did for me was to tell one of the floor managers that I really helped her out and gave excellent customer service :)

  2. That's such a cute story! That lady must have been stylin'!

  3. This is something new and I really like it! Would you like to follow each other darling?:X
