The Humble Old Lady
A little old lady and her friend walked up to our Ridgeline beef stand at the local farmer's markets to buy sausages. She said they were delicious and asked how we sold them. They come in a pack of six, roughly half a kilo. Her friend asked whether she could buy just three as she felt there was no way her friend could get through a whole packet. Of course, no problem I said as I opened the bag and wrapped up three for her. The surprise, delight, and genuine appreciation that we would open a full packet to help her out made my day. Both this lady and her friend were so thankful, and everyone was happy. The lady walked away and stopped about 5 m from the stand and look back to wave and say thank you so much. She asked, "am I able to do this again next month?" When I said yes, she beamed with a big smile and looked stoked. An old farmer standing next to our bbq said that the lady is a multimillionaire, she could buy your property with hundred dollar bills. There was such a great lesson in humility, how the simple things in life can bring such pleasure, and how you really can never judge a book by its cover. Imagine the stories that old lady could tell.
