But yeah, let's put aside that there's an insane amount of work to be done and appreciate the little things in life that can do a complete 180 on your day.
I was craving something sweet and slightly crunchy after lunch so I stopped by Timmies on campus to get a few Timbits, ordering two Chocolate Snows and one Sour Cream Glazed. After paying and requesting the lady for a receipt, I opened the bag and realized that the amount of Timbits present in the bag was actually DOUBLE the amount I ordered! She had given me FOUR Chocolate Snows and TWO Sour Cream Glazed! And not charged me anything extra!
What a sweetie =') She just totally made my day! ❤
If you recall, one of my first posts ever mentioned a Second Cup barista's amazing memory of her customers. She had made my day so memorable that I was giddy all the way home.
Today was the same. The Timmy's cashier was just so sweet that I couldn't help but smile during the entire trip to my (long, dreaded) tutorial, and after class as well ^ ω ^
Perhaps such a small action may not seem much to many, but to those who are having a bad day (or week), these little things are genuinely effective in boosting optimism. And it's the thoughtfulness that makes all the difference.
