Kill 'em With Kindness

You know how you can be pleasantly surprised when you think someone's about to act like a jerk and then they don't? This morning I was in the deli getting coffee and the cashier handed me my change.  I almost always look at my quarters to see which states I got.  When I was staring at my change, I think the cashier thought I was going to make a stink about an incorrect amount of change or something.  So he got this really nasty look on his face, which I saw when I looked up.

He was clearly expecting negativity.  Instead, I just looked at him, smiled and said "I got Florida.  And Louisiana..."

He laughed out loud.
