Fist Bump Friday: Being Helpful {In the Cafe}

Fist Bump Friday {Living Outside the Stacks}

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that I like to do a little something called “Fist Bump Friday”, where I encourage my friends to share something that has made them happy during the week. Sometimes we get so bogged down with life and the crazy that comes with it that we forget to recognize the good things. So I thought it’d be fun if we all shared and celebrated together.

So please, share your good news in the comments below. Remember, it doesn’t have to be big or earth shattering. If it’s important to you, it’s important to me.

This week, I’m happy that I was able to help an older woman learn to use her cell phone… I was looking at yarn at Hobby Lobby, when I kept hearing this woman say “I’m so stupid, I can’t even figure out how to use my phone.” Her friends were standing nearby, proudly showing her how they’d pulled up coupons on their cell phones, while she kept calling herself stupid. For the life of me, I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t help her, so by the 5th or 6th “I’m so stupid…” I interrupted. “Excuse me, ma’am, I don’t mean to interrupt your conversation but do you mind if I help you?” She smiled and handed me her phone. I took it from her and showed her how to locate the Google icon, type information into the search box, and retrieve her coupons. She thanked me profusely so I explained to her that I’m a librarian, that’s what I do.

What made you happy this week?
