Have y'all ever had the opportunity to step up and help someone out? You know like paying for their groceries when they realize they're short or helping them up if they fall or helping someone short reach something on a top shelf...that sort of thing. Simple, everyday things that can make the difference in someone's day.
Do y'all know that I have never had the opportunity to do any of it except help an elderly lady find her brand of coffee once in Trader Joe's? Oh, I've seen these people. But there always seems to be someone in front of me or closer in proximity to the person and they don't hesitate to step up and help out. It's downright annoying.
I know I should be grateful that there are people who are more than willing and able to help a fellow human out and I am but I'd like to have the chance too. I mean, come on!
I can so relate to the characters in the Kohl's commercials:
Did y'all see the squirrel at the end? He folds his arms in obvious frustration that he did not get to help make that dad's Christmas better. That's me. I'm the squirrel. Because someone like that nice lady is always one step ahead of me.
Oh, well. That commercial reminded me of the next one. The one that's brought a swell to my heart and a happy tear to my eye. Oh, and makes me want to be Mrs. Claus:
