My Boyfriend Is The Best...

We went to the grocery store this evening and it was surprisingly not crowded.

We didn't have too many items in our basket but more than the minimum for the quick check lines. My boyfriend had put everything on the conveyor belt and then remembered that he wanted tortillas. I told him to run.

While he was gone I noticed this man behind me. He didn't have anything in his hand except a small bag containing one fish. I asked him if that was all he had. He indicated that it was so I told the cashier to take him first and told him to go in front of me. He was thankful and began to tell me the story of why he was buying the fish. My boyfriend had walked up with the tortillas but he did not join in the conversation. He is actually very quiet. He smiled and nodded at the man but that was about it. As the man left I wished him good luck with his fish and we bid each other a good evening.

There was another man behind us now. I searched for a divider so he could begin to unload his items from his basket and place them on the conveyor belt. He found it first and placed it on the belt. He was buying tons of frozen foods. He began to tell me that he just bought a large deep freezer and he's always wanted to buy this much frozen food. We talked a bit about it until my boyfriend finished paying and it was time for us to go. I told him to enjoy his new freezer and less frequent trips to the store. We wished each other a nice evening.

As we were leaving I noticed my boyfriend has a huge smile on his face. I said, "What?" He said, "That's why I love you so much. You are so sweet to people."

You're so lucky, I wish I could find a guy like that, or a friend like you! Most people brush me off because I'm "too nice". Anyway, great story! Gives me hope that there are more people like me out there!
