Hello everyone and Happy Friday!!!!!!
Today I wanted to share with you something that happened to me today. It all started with these pop-tarts. I was getting kinda hungry at work and it wasn't time for lunch yet so I decided to go down to the vending machine and get me something to eat. These were my choice since it was still early I counted it as my breakfast.
I noticed something on the back of the package as it was falling so I was extremely curious to see what it was. It looked like money but I just figured my eyes were playing tricks on me. This is what I saw when I flipped it over
To say I was surprised is an understatement. I had to immediately go and tell the receptionist and my boss about it. It made my day even more than it already being a FRIDAY!!!! So it got me to thinking about how good it made me feel and how good someone else would feel if they got this kind of a surprise. Can you guess where I am going with this?
So hubby and I rented a couple of movies the other night and I forgot to take them back to redbox yesterday. So I took them with me to work today so I would be sure to return them today. Here is the surprise someone else is going to find in one of their rentals.
I went to pizap.com and made this cute little note, tucked in the $2 and stashed it in the movie. Stuck it in the box and went on into Krogers to shop for some candy.
Krogers had their Halloween candy on clearance so I stocked up on some for hubby and the kids. As I was leaving I thought to myself that I paid more than I should have. Sure enough I counted how many items I bought, checked the prices and realized not only did I pay more but I didn't pay for one all together. Back inside I went. I had the lady check the display with the items I got and sure enough someone had put the wrong size item in the display and that is why it was more. I told her I wanted the one's on clearance and one I get for free because it rang up wrong.
She got me the right items but accidentally brought back a mixed bag instead of one with all Snickers. She voided the wrong one's and rang up the correct one's and then gave me the original one back for the mistake. SCORE!!!!!!!! I got a $3.48 bag of Snicker Mini's for FREE. Man talking about hitting the jackpot today.
I stopped and grabbed lunch from White Castles and donated a dollar to the YMCA Shelter and in return got a coupon for TWO FREE Sliders. The Final kicker of paying it forward today...I get home to find a $50 coupon for a $99 purchase from Kay Jewelers. I Love that place. It is like the only store I will buy jewelry from.
So tell me how your Friday went? Did you have any surprises happen to you today that brightened your mood? Or better yet when was the last time you Paid It Forward? I am telling you it made me feel like I was on cloud nine. Yes I know it was only a poptart that started it but isn't Breakfast the most important meal of the day? Today it sure was. It changed the entire way I was thinking today.
I would love to hear about your adventures or the last time you had someone Pay It Forward for you.
P,S. To the person who will get this rental, I hope it brightened your day some because I know it did mine when I got my Pay It Forward to me today. Enjoy the Movie.
