Day 103 of Campaign Smile was rainy, overcast and potentially sad all day here. What better time to help develop smiles in the world…
1. I made a brief campaign stop after work and the first employee I passed in the store had a very friendly smile for me.
2. I watched a large number of people walking without smiles or, it seemed, much joy. About three of them actually made eye contact with me but simply stared right through me.
3. Finally, a nice woman pushing her cart past where I stood gave me a winning smile.
4. The cashier who helped me was very friendly and asked how I was doing. She went the extra mile when she didn’t hear me to ask again which made me feel she was interested in the answer. She added a quiet smile to complete the interaction.
