Sometimes the littlest things can make someone happy. Take for example the other day. I had a paint order to fill at the local Lowe’s Home Improvement Center. As it turned out the base that was needed to mix my paint was not available in a 5-gallon bucket.
This was the case for 3 of the colors I needed. The gentleman mixing my paint said he could do it in 1-gallon cans and charge it at the 5-gallon price. This was fine for me but a lot of extra work for him. I needed a total of 25-gallons of custom paint and the only other person in the paint department was assisting other customers.
An hour passed and I was getting thirsty so I got a soda from their frig and proceeded to the checkout. Then it dawned on me that if I’m thirsty just standing around he might enjoy a drink too, so I grabbed another Pepsi. His reaction was priceless. He said in all his years working behind the counter, no one had ever bought him a soda before. He had a smile on his face for the remainder of the time he was mixing my paint.
