Day 12 Make & Give: Grace under pressure

Today is the twelfth day of my special holiday season of giving. From now until December 25th, I plan to make and or do something special for someone I may   or may not know.

I’m hoping that these little acts of kindness will inspire my readers and their friends to do the same!

Meet Bob, owner of the local contract postal unit in our part of town. This CPU offers all the services of a regular post office…just a smaller suite version. When you walk into this CPU there’s usually a bit of a line but no one seems to ever mind. People seem to chat freely with folks they know and those they don’t. The place excludes the a sense of community.  And that’ s probably because of the owner and his staff. People there don’t ever get that stressed out feeling of frustration one can get standing and waiting in line! All is well, they know, I will get to the counter soon and Bob and his crew will take all of my postal needs. Yesterday his postage label printer was down, not good… especially at this extra busy shipping time of year! But there was Bob, smiling, weighing packages, figuring out the cost and putting on the appropriate stamps, one at a time. The word on the line was that he apparently lost a lot of money that day having to put enough postage on …no rounding down!

So today, on hopefully my last visit there during the holidays to ship out stuff, I brought him and his staff one of my homemade holiday cakes to snack on! Way to go Bob and company!
