This Made Me Smile…

So I got my nails done today and after hopping of the chair to leave, I notice one of my sandals is missing. Unbeknownst to anyone it had been mistakenly scooped up by one of the many accessory carts the ladies are constantly whizzing around the shop.

Next thing I know there are 10 of us, staff and clients, crawling around the floor and hysterically laughing while trying to find my darn shoe. Someone eventually did and we all screamed with joy like it was a diamond ring. I didn’t have the heart to mention they were a $9.99 bargain buster item from the local grocery store.

Two lessons learned; people like to help and will pitch in when given the opportunity and everyone enjoys a good belly laugh!

Have a wonderful and safe Fourth of July weekend everyone. πŸ™‚

    Can a guy appreciate this ladies adventure without spoiling the party? lol

    The unexpected joy from something so simple and your instant teamwork was hilarious but very cool as you say.

    Now there’s another story too: the things we lose………and the zeal of our searches. Glad though you found the pearl of great price!! πŸ˜‰

  3. Now the question that follows is, “if it was a diamond ring that was lost, would the finder be just as willing to return the ring as the finder was willing to return the shoe?” It is my belief under these conditions the ring would have been returned. Under different circumstances, if the ring was found by a person already possessing wealth, I might be less optimistic. Some people can’t seem to accumulate enough to bring joy to their lives. The need for ongoing wealth satiation has no limits for some. I feel sorry for these individuals.
    Anyway, glad your situation worked out and brought lots of smiles to everyone’s faces.

    Well I wasn’t going to chime in until ColorStorm showed up. I actually got a visual image there and it made me laugh.

    Made me think of Jesus seeking us also…and a couple of parables about people seeking lost things like sheep and coins.

    Funny stuff Tricia

      Somehow I think both you and ColorStorm would do fine chatting it up with the ladies in a nail salon. I mean that as a compliment by the way…;)

      Love the parable comparison, very apt!

  5. My first job out of high school was at the local Dunkin Donuts, and every school day around lunchtime lots of the local high school kids would show up to get their sugar fix. One day after school, a few kids who had been there at lunchtime came in again, and one of them was frantic because he’d lost his retainer (and back in those days, those things were damned expensive to replace). He’d taken it out while he was eating, wrapped it in a napkin to keep it clean, and then absent-mindedly left it on the counter when he left to go back to school. Since it looked like any normal crumpled-up napkin, it had been swept off the counter into the trash. I got the trash can where I figured it must be and upended it, and everyone started searching through the trash. Eventually someone found the missing retainer, and a huge, unanimous shout of joy went up from all of us. It was one of those wonderful memorable moments from my short-lived career as a donut pusher. πŸ™‚

      I loved that story Bluebird, thank you for sharing! Isn’t it awesome those spontanious moments like that we will remember forever?

      I never worked at Dunkin Doughnuts but I was always a big fan and I also knew plenty of kids who threw out their retainers like tha! You must have grown up back east like me (Massachusetts).
