The woman infront of me took ages, but to be perfectly honest I didn't care. I'm walking around in a daze lately and it was nice just standing there. Anyways, the woman finished and it was my turn. The girl behind the counter, about 30ish, said: 'Hello' as her training dictates and I greeted her in return. She asked if I wanted any help packing and I declined. She scanned, I packed. It was over in a few minutes. I payed by card and she asked me to check the amount and sign. It was at that moment that I felt it. Something clicked inside when she looked at me. I knew she was a genuinely lovely person. I don't know how? I just knew. She kind of felt it too. There was a weird kind of everything stopped moment ... and then it all came rushing back. I said thanks and left. She said Goodbye but it was a weird, what the hell just happened kind of Bye. Broken and confused sounding, yet backed by a smile.
I like moments like that.
