This is just a quick story about how I ruined a stranger’s day:
So I was in Whole foods yesterday, standing in the dairy/cereal/everything aisle watching this guy with a thick handle bar mustache (A product of No Shave November/Awesome lifestyle choice) decide between two similar brands of Almond Milk for about 10 minutes . I mean, who wouldn’t enjoy watching it? It was literally fascinating watching him furrow his brow, weigh and ,yes!, sniff the cartons of milk in both hands. I felt like I was in a Natural Food Store Zoo.
Believe me, I’ve been this person sooo many times it’s ridiculous. It was like he was a cartoon character who just slipped on a banana and was seeing stars. Of course a chuckle started to build up, but I still moved to help him. When I helped him to get up, I seriously have no idea how, but I accidentally punched him in the chest, sending him back to the floors. I guess my gripping was wrong or something, but my tiny fist (I have small hands) somehow came in contact with his chest. It really was an accident.
So I started to say “OHMIGOD! I’m so sorry…Are you Okay?” and then he said “Yeah, I’m fine. Thanks, Sherlock”.
Then, naturally I said “You’re Welcome” because I cannot read sarcasm.
I swear this isn’t a moment out of a sitcom, but as soon as he got up and started angrily walking away, a bag of granola flew from a top shelf and landed on his head. He threw his hands up.
He grabbed his yogurt on his way out.
I had to immediately leave the aisle before I brought him anymore bad luck or started laughing like an idiot.
I actually forgot what I came in the store for after that. I wanted to buy him a “sorry about punching you” cake, but he disappeared.
I really hope his day turned around and I hope he laughs today.
