On Day 105 of Campaign Smile I made a couple of short stops to spread joy…
1. I went with my wife for a quick lunch this afternoon and we were really amused by the ladies working there. When we arrived, one was diligently working the register and trying to help these two women who were using coupons and the three of them were sorting whether they needed two separate orders to used 2 coupons. Meanwhile, one of the women from the kitchen started working down the line and taking orders to prepare the food before the people reached the register. It was truly something unique to watch. When another woman stepped in line behind us she was asked what she was going to have. She was extremely concerned that we were being skipped over and went to great lengths to explain that we were there first. After a few moments the woman from the kitchen and my wife and I helped her to understand that the food sitting on the counter was ours that we had yet to order. Very comical but amazingly efficient. I also gathered smiles from the two women at the register and the kitchen.
2. This afternoon I stopped somewhere that was holding early voting for the primary. There were tons of campaign signs everywhere as well as a number of people camped out outside the restricted area to show support for their candidate. As it was the first day, most of them were not really aggressive and were generally relaxing and making themselves available should anyone have questions. One gentleman, though, did greet me and smile to me as I walked toward the door. There was an election representative stationed outside the door. I believe he was passing out sample ballots but not smiles. I also looked over and caught the eye of the gentleman working near the door of the room where everyone was voting. He had no smile to offer either.
With the limited exposure today I certainly had some enjoyable experiences and gathered 3 more smiles. That makes the count 359! Happy Monday.
