These are all things that have happened to me in past month.
Nice or Creepy? You decide.
Scenario 1: I am exiting Hobby Lobby with a baby on the hip and a glass lamp in the other hand (too independent for a cart!). A high school aged boy runs over and asks me if I need help and then procedes to open the door for me.
Decision: Nice. How can you not love a willing teen in this day and age? And the fact that it happened at Hobby Lobby only solidifies my love for that place.
Scenario 2: I’m at a gas station, pumping gas with MG on my hip (I had to take her inside to pay so I was giving her a lesson on pumping because we had time to kill). A late twenties gentleman appears out of nowhere and asks if he can help. Hold my baby? Pump the gas?
Decision: Creep factor is high. He looked like a genuine person, but I’m not letting anyone get their hands near my chile, that includes you, Glenda the check out lady!
Addendum: I happened to pull out behind his truck (which had an army vet bumper sticker). Heart softened. While we are waiting at the red light, he suddenly gets out of his truck. I lock my doors. Seriously, what is going on. He waves me around him and then I see him help push a broken-down vehicle out of the intersection. Okay, crisis averted. He found his good deed for day and my faith is restored in humanity. Nice!
Scenario 3: I’m currently outside of MG’s room as I type this. She is asleep in her crib with her favorite doll. The one who happens to talk and giggle. And it keeps talking and giggling at random times.
Decision: Creepy. Time to “hide” baby and replace it with one that is a little less…ahem…noisy.
Enjoy you day…whatever nice or creepy things come your way!
