Dear Whole Foods Guy,
You don’t know me and I’m not stalking you. Now that that is out of the way… I couldn’t help but notice you in the checkout line next to me.
Firstly, bravo on eating healthy! I was impressed by your unpretentious, yet nutritious selections. Aside from the box of “Cliff bars” it seems you eat pretty well for an unmarried guy.
Second, kudos on having a job in this economy. That is unless you like wearing dress pants and a tie just for the fun of it in 90 degree weather…in which case, you are odd. However, since you were wearing said attire AND shopping at Whole Foods, I think it is a safe assumption that you have a job and it pays well. Good for you!
Finally, there’s just something about a guy who shows respect to the people who are serving him that is extremely commending. You didn’t just move out of the way so that bagger guy could grab the hand baskets under the conveyer belt, you helped, not once, but twice. You said please and thank you to the cashier and bagged your own groceries. Overall (from the 2 minutes we were in the same vicinity) you seem like a genuinely nice guy.
Don’t worry, I’m not planning on changing my shopping day to Tuesday on the off chance you consistently run out of Cliff Bars on Monday so we can continue to run into each other, and I’m not disillusioned enough to think you actually read my blog. I just wanted to let you know that it is really reassuring to know that there are decent looking, decent acting guys who aren’t wearing a wedding ring (yet). It’s about as rare as a expensive heirloom tomato, but it’s totally worth it… So thank you, and enjoy your organic grapes.
