Last week my wife and I went shopping as some of our favorite places – second hand stores. I was preparing for total knee replacement and I needed some durable medical supplies (canes, walkers, ice packs, etc.)
The store we visited is called Kathleen’s Kornor. As you can imagine Kathleen is the owner and a friend. She is on West market Street in Akron, what is referred to as the Highland Square Area.
While visiting, the internet went down and Kathleen could not take credit cards.
This individual wanted to buy a roll of shelving paper and had no cash. He wanted to use his card, which could not be processed because of the internet problems.
I offer to pay cash and only ask that he pay it forward. He actually refused.
Not wanting Kathleen to lose the sales, I gave Kathleen the money. He offered to reimburse me $1.
As I walked out the store I simply asked him to pay it forward.
As I walked out the door I wondered why he resisted our simply request.
This got me thinking about all the times I refused help because of pride, time, embarrassment and other strange things we humans sometime do to ourselves.
So now I have a request I would like you to pay it forward. My Coauthor Dr. Tony Alessandra if offering a DISC assessment at no charge ($79 value). Here are the details. You can receive some great information and help someone at the same time.
To Your Success,
