My shopping experience started as I walked through the store and was trying to be as friendly as I could. I seen a parent of one my students that I was able to stop and talk to. Then I saw a former student that graduated last year that told me she switched her major from art to engineering. Then I also heard one customer say to another customer as he was looking into his wallet to see how much money he had to spend- "hey are you looking for that hard earned money which is truly what it takes now a days." Which I do agree with.
Then walked to the checkout line. Like always I looked for the shorter line, I pulled up to the register and to my surprise no divider bar to separate my groceries from the person in front of me. So I took my children’s lunchable boxes and made a nice line. Well the lady in front of me was showing concerns with getting are groceries’ mixed up. I told her, I would be glad to let her buy them. Ya, it was a little awkward, she did the fake smile and went about her way. So I stood there as my groceries got rang up and thought about this whole experience then I looked down on my key ring and seen the words "Pay it Forward". Then this crazy idea popped in my head; "I should pay for the groceries of the person behind me." So I did!
