The Little Things in Life that Matter
Then I noticed that the guard wasn’t tossing whatever it was just randomly--he had made a pattern! I followed the pattern from his feet outwards, and then I saw it: a full-grown pigeon, on the floor heading to one of the doors to the store, toddling along and pecking at the pieces of what had to be food. The guard was luring it to the open door!
As for the employee, she wasn’t just standing there being pleasant. She was quietly motioning to incoming and outgoing customers to look down so they’d see the pigeon, and then use a door further down. And it was working! I wanted to stay to watch how it ended but didn’t want to instigate a crowd, so I left. But I was so delighted, I had to tell everyone about it after I left. Sure, it was just a little thing, but boy did it matter to me!
