A visit to the dentist and unexpected kindness

Posted on Thursday, July 10, 2014 in My life

Today, it was time for the dreaded visit to the dentist. As it turned out, I could have saved myself some worrying. I was really lucky. The tooth didn’t hurt at all and I didn’t need any painkiller. Now I have a functioning tooth again and can eat normally. It’s such a relief.

Later when I was standing in the checkout line at the supermarket, I was holding just one loaf of bread, behind two huge shopping carts filled with all kinds of food. The woman in front of my turned to look at me and asked me if that was all I had. I said yes and she said that I could get ahead of her. “It’s rubbish waiting in line after people with so much stuff”, she said. That was really kind of her. The guy behind the cash register had already grabbed some of her items but he had heard our conversation and asked what was going on. Fortunately, he hadn’t started on her stuff yet, so I could still get my loaf processed and paid for ahead of the nice lady behind me.

That was not how I expected this day to turn out. 🙂 Sometimes it’s nice to be wrong.
