A Man Made Me Cry, In Walmart

Monday, after I dropped Kid off at school I went grocery shopping.

I was walking through Walmart, minding my own business when an older (60's) man drove up behind me in one of those motorized carts.

"I just wanted to tell you you're beautiful."

Me: *Speechless*

"Has anyone ever told you you're beautiful?"

Me: *Mouth Hanging Open* Uh, rarely.

About now I'm thinking that he must just be telling me this because he's one of those people that think everyone is beautiful, no matter what and that they should all be told.

"Well, you are. You're one of the most beautiful ladies I've seen around here."

After he said that my previous theory didn't really hold. So there I was with my mouth hanging open. Then, it occurred to me that he drove up from behind me. So I said (And now that I think about it, it probably sounded sort of cocky but I promise I didn't intend for it to sound that way.) "You got that from the back of my head?"

Then he explained that he saw me in the other aisle and made it a point to drive around and tell me.

Now, I was standing in the middle of Walmart crying. Then, I was trying to laugh to cover up the crying. Haha. It was ridiculous. I'm so glad no one else was in that aisle. lol

He quickly assured me that he hadn't intend to embarrass me, he just wanted to tell me. He asked if I lived here. I said yes. Then, being who I am, I had to add that I didn't live in Walmart but I did live in town. He got a kick out of that and asked if I was from here originally. I told him no, I was from PA. He said he noticed I didn't have a "twang" when I spoke. Haha (Thank goodness!! lol)

He asked me if I was married and I told him yes. He told me I should go home and tell my Husband that I'm beautiful and if he didn't see that there were others who would. Haha.

It was such a strange experience, but I have to be honest, it was nice. Also, he wasn't hitting on me or anything like that he was just trying to be nice.

Monday was a strange day for me. Haha.

That is so sweet of him to stop you and make your day like that. It sounds like a moment out of a movie or something. :-)

That is so awesome! Bet it made your day. And your little man in kindergarten, he looks so grown up in that pic (not that I saw him when he was little or anything)...our 4 yr old is going to be starting preschool in a few weeks ...I am going to be a mess. Glad you held out and he had a great day!
