Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Blind Date And An Eyebrow Wax

--by Rice, posted Oct 11, 2007

I was sitting in the salon with my eyebrows bushy and badly needing a wax. The man tells me it'll be ten minutes.  Ok, I'll be back I say. And I'm back in 10 and waiting patiently. 

Just then a lady walks in requesting the same service - an eyebrow wax. The man asks her if she wants to wait awhile. She laughs and responds, "Do I want to wait? No."  She readies herself to turn around and leave. I speak up and ask if it's still 10 minutes for me? No, it will be 20 minutes for the new lady, your turn is now.

What else can I do? I tell him "No, please give my turn to this lady and I'll come back tomorrow." He looks at me confused "That's what you want to do?"

The lady thanks me and asks how did I know she had a blind date? I winked at her and told her "A woman knows these things" LOL

Again many thanks and warm wishes go around. I head to my car and remember my SMILE card. I run back in and she's sitting in "my" chair with her eyes closed. I place the card on her lap and told her to do me a favor and read it when she had a chance...**POOF** I was gone.

My eyebrows are still bushy but I feel good! Never know, she could have met her future husband tonight! 8)

I am new to the site, and just learning about the idea of a Smile Card -- it's really a cool concept!! Also, I worked at a salon, and I wish more people would have had the grace and patience that you had to help out another woman. God Bless!
