A Whole Big Lot Of Love

Graphic from Google Images
My mother called me from the car yesterday.  She was on her way to Big Lots to look an area rug she had seen online.  She called the local store first to find out if they had a rug she saw online, in stock at the store.

She said she gave the nice kid on the phone all the information he asked for - SKU number, price, description.  He told her to hold while he went to go look.

When he got back on the phone he apologized for taking so long, said he had to look through the entire rug aisle.

"No problem." my mother said.  "I appreciate you taking the time to look."

"No problem, really.  I also looked at the inventory on the computer and that particular rug is not on display at our store but we have many others in that size." he said.

"Okay," she said.  "I'll probably take a ride up there later today.  You have a really good evening and once again, thank you very much."

"Oh, no prob." he said.  "You have a good night too.  Love ya!"

And with that, he hung up the phone.

We could not stop laughing.  She said the kid was probably mortified when he hung up the phone but my mother said he was so nice and personable she felt like she was talking to me or my brother.

I've been on the verge of doing this very thing when talking to non-family members

I'm sure that kid is hoping she never comes in for that rug.
