Put a check in the nice cashier column! I am so used to people saying goofy or often (unintentionally I'm sure) stupid things to me while pregnant that I just have to share this story...

Dd and I were shopping at Trader Joe's today, which is always interesting while 38 weeks pregnant with a toddler. When we went to checkout the lines were really long and as I was sliding in to one to wait this lady walked behind me and said, "purple balloon?" I took me a minute to realize that she was an employee, so I asked dd "oh, do you want a purple balloon?" and she says "no...slide over to the register with the purple balloons and I'll check you out." So while she's ringing us up she asks when I'm due. I tell her and she leaves the register (which has me totally confused for a minute) and goes over to the flowers and brings back this huge boquet and says, "May you have a safe and blessed delivery!" How nice is that? After she finished checking me out she shut down the register and went back to stocking her shelf. It was so obvious that she came over not just to help me get checked out quickly, but also to bless me with some flowers....How awesome is that?...I think I'll be smiling all day now!

OK, that brought tears to my eyes, and I don't even think hormones are to blame. That is an incredibly sweet story.

What a wonderful story! I agree a quick note to the manager would probably make HER day!
