the little things: volume 5

is that a cassette ?
wtf can you do with a cassette these days?

the answer: no.  

that is  not a cassette.
that's my new iphone case .
(and that's new girl in the background, getting caught up on the last few episodes via hulu)

i was nice to a stranger at the laundromat.  
i smiled and said excuse me.

then that large hispanic man with a greasy ponytail and sweatpants said:
"here, let me do you a favor"
he handed me a cassette-shaped iphone case.
"thank you! are you sure?"
"girl, you can't go around with a naked iphone, are you crazy??"
"i know! i dropped it so many times i can't believe i didn't break it already, but really are you sure? thanks so much!"
"yeah, i tried selling them for $5 a pop and i already got my money's worth and i just wanna get rid of them."

little did he know i was about to purchase this super cute case for $35.

so... my charm and smile saved me $35!! 

and thanks again, mr hispanic man with a ponytail wearing sweatpants!!

What a great story -- I guess that's what little acts of kindness can do sometimes! Love the cute case xo

Drives me nuts when I see people in the grocery or whatever being feisty with the cashier or other works like they should bow down to them... or if they are mean to other customers in the store. Just goes to show how far a little kindness can go :D
