View Full Version : "We saved your place for you"

I had to run back out this evening - so on the way, I stopped at the liquor store to start picking up some of the wine for Christmas Eve dinner. I had too many bottles, so I stepped out of line and put them away, still with 4 bottles plus champagne in my basket. I turned back and, like a good shopper, went to the back of the line.

The two men who were there in line insisted I retake my spot, saying "We saved your place for you." When I originally said, no, that was all right, they insisted, saying that what they had wasn't as heavy as what I did, so to go ahead. I was stunned, pleasantly so. I thanked them then and again when I left. It was just a nice thing for them to do. http://users.pandora.be/eforum/emoticons4u/happy/150.gif
