Buying the Baker Her Favorite Treat
--by poetrybug, posted Feb 15, 2022
There was nothing I could do about that, except for offering sympathy, but I tried to offer a little kindness. I asked if she could eat the baked goods they sold herself if she needed a treat. She said she couldn't eat them unless they were broken. Under the guise of asking for a recommendation, I asked about her favourite treat, and pretended to be buying it for myself to try. Then I gave it right back to her.
It took her a minute to realize what I'd done, and I left pretty quickly, not wanting to make her feel awkward! I hope it made her day a little bit better, and that she felt like someone cared.
