She sent me a text message this morning. It went like this:
Mom, it has happened to me...they offered to carry my groceries to the car this morning. I have never had that happen before. I think it was because I looked extra beautiful.My response was:
I think you should go with that explanation dear. I love you!Retirement at such a young age is truly wonderful. She is just hitting her stride and will start a new job next Monday. Life is good!
Did your daughter retire from one job and start another? Funny explanation for an offer of help carrying groceries :)ReplyDelete
I LOVE that explanation for help carrying the groceries. I am 57 and (for the first time ever) a teenager working at our local A & W questioned if I could really carry such a heavy tray (2 coffees and 2 Egg McMuffins) to my table...seriously! Next time I will definitely go with your daughter's rationale! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
It isThe only way to look at it.Delete
They keep offering to take our groceries out to the car too (we are 56 and 54 respectively). I keep saying "I'll see you in ten years." Sometimes they get it, often they don't. Congrats to your daughter!ReplyDelete
My reply usually is "thank you very much but I think I can get it. "Delete
