Just another errand
I had to run an errand on Wednesday to the UPS Store. While getting my mail one of the UPS employees was helping a woman (probably in her 60’s) to set up something on her phone.
UPS: Ok ma’am, you’ll need to set up a password. What you might want to do is pick a password that won’t be easy for someone to guess, but one that will be easy for you to remember.
I was now interested in what they were doing. The woman seemed perplexed when considering a possible password. After a lengthy pause, she finally types something in. Seeming to be relieved at the completion of this task, she hands the phone back to the employee.
I was wondering what the woman decided to type, and before I could stop myself I blurted out: So, what did you pick? What’s your password?
The lady looked startled and then started to tell me, when the employee (laughing) stopped her: Ma’am, you really shouldn’t tell people your password.
Then looking at me and shaking her head, still laughing, the UPS employee said to me: Flip, only you! Please stop messing with the other customers.
That one was kind of an accident, one of many moments in my life that was supposed to be an “inside my head thought” that escaped while I wasn’t looking.
