Last evening, I went to do my grocery shopping straight after work given that shops are going to be shut on Christmas day and I had been putting off my shopping for a while. So anyway, I did my shopping and had about 7 bags. I took a few along with my handbag and diary upstairs and then came back for four more. Unfortunately, my choices weren’t great since these 4 bags had eggs and bread in one, 3 cartons of milk in another, and lemonade and cordial in one more. I succeeded in getting them out of the car and locking up the garage door without any problems.
Now, I live in a security block where you have a key to enter the building either through the back or front. I was struggling to find the right key on the keyring to open up the door at the back along with being careful with the bag having eggs when all of a sudden it sprung open. There was a guy (late teens or early 20s) who held open the door for me (never seen him before…probably lives in the building. Or not) I was pleasantly surprised but figured he may have needed to go out anyway and hence opened the door. But nope…he just opened the door for me and after I thanked him and he said ‘no worries’ he went out the front entrance of the building.
Made me think: chivalry isn’t dead yet.
And brought a smile to my face at the end of a tiring day.
In case you are wondering, I had no problem carrying the bags up one floor to my unit and since I hadn’t locked the door after the first time, it wasn’t difficult getting in.
Until next time,
