Home Depot Employee

I was shopping at Home Depot for a shop vac, and a nice older gentleman asked me if I needed any help. I eventually settled on a Rigid 16 gallon wet/dry vacuum with a detachable blower. Before I could load it up, he asked, "What does your husband do for a living?" I was hesitant at first and then I said quietly, "He's a police officer". He then said to me, "So he's gone a lot from home? Works a lot of holidays and special occasions? You have to do a lot of things around the house by yourself?" I answered "yes" to everything. He said, "I was in the military for many years and I know how hard it is on the family to be gone so much. Tell your husband thanks for his service." He took out his box cutter and opened the box. I was confused and probably looking at him like he was crazy, and then he said, "Oops. Since it's opened, I"m going to have to give it to you 30% off." Then he winked at me and carried it to the front of the store and made sure I had help out to my car. It took me completely by surprise. His kindness really touched me. There are great people out there! In this line of work we rarely look for or see the good in others, but it's there if we pay attention.

Always enjoy a positive story. A good reminder as well that I need to be one of those nice people "out there" when dealing with the public. Glad to see you writing again, and that you all are thriving as you said with all of the changes.
