Day 324: Helped A Woman Pick Up Spilled Groceries


Today was one of those days where I didn't have anything in mind for my random act and wanted to see if an opportunity for kindness reared its' head.  I got kind of scared because I had such a hectic, heads down work day that I hadn't come across anything that I could do.  I went to physical therapy for my back after work, and the entire time I was wracking my brain trying to think of what I could do.  It actually made my normally relaxing post PT massage quite anxiety filled.  I left physical therapy thinking that it had finally happened: I was going to go a day without doing a random act.  But then...it happened.  On my way home, I was walking past Treasure Island grocery story when I saw a young woman carrying WAY too many groceries to her car.  Before I had the opportunity to offer to carry them, she spilled the bags on the ground and all of the groceries spilled out.  So today, for my random act of kindness, I helped a woman pick up spilled groceries, put them back into her bag, and the load them into her car.  I think I kind of creeped her out because after she thanked me I said, "No. Thank you.  You have helped me more than you know."  It didn't hit me until I was halfway down the block how insanely oddball that sounded.  I should have explained what I meant and how she helped my random acts, but now I am sitting here wondering if this girl is sitting at home telling her friends about the creep who picked up her groceries.  I hope this doesn't negate my act.
