Handing Out Valentine Cards

--by Christine88, posted Mar 24, 2022
I never did share  my  experience giving away valentine cards. I had made about 20 large cards and 10 small tiny ones. I made the envelopes on those as well. I was going to sell them but decided to give them away.

My first person. A coworker and I went to drop off a work vehicle at car dealership for warranty work. An elderly lady was walking across to her vehicle. I walked up and said happy valentine's day and handed her the tiny card.

She looked at me puzzled. She asked, this is for me? I said yes, I make valentine's day cards and hand them out. She asked, do you work here? I said no, I'm here, blah blah. She had the sweetest irish accent. She started to cry. She said "no one ever does these kind of nice things anymore". I said "well, they happen today." 

After work I was driving. At a red light in the car next to me a dad had his window down and was speaking to his little boy (5 or 6). I rolled down my window and said" hi!" He smiled and said "hi how are you?" I said "good, here I want to give you something". I jumped out and gave his son a larger valentine card and said happy valentine's day. They both were happy and said thank you! The little boy had a box full of candy and valentine's on his lap.

I went to get my food at my local casino restaurant I frequent by my home. I handed out the rest of the cards to the employees there. It was a great day.
