Earlier today I popped to my nail salon hoping they’d be able to squeeze me in slightly before my appointment time. Happily they could so I sat down next to a girl of about the same age as myself; I remember thinking she was really pretty and that I liked the colour she’d chosen for her nails.
We sat side-by-side for 10 minutes. As she got up she said “Excuse me” and I didn’t respond, presuming she was talking to the nail technicians. She said it again. I turned to her and she asked “Can I give you this?”, putting an envelope down next to me. Written on it were the words “SURPRISE FOR YOU…YES YOU…”. I looked at her and she smiled shyly; I smiled back and thanked her. She left.
I’m a nosy person (naturally, I am northern) so I impatiently waited until my nails were done before rushing outside to open my intriguing blue envelope. Inside was £10 and attached a note saying “HAPPY MONDAY! Use this to spoil someone that you love today. #givemondays”. I implore you: please check it out! I can’t tell you how happy it made me, I even felt a bit tearful and I’m not the emotional type at all (except when it comes to Disney films – seriously, don’t even mention “Toy Story 3″ to me).
Have any of you ever experienced a random act of kindness?
