Delivering connection

I can’t remember if I’ve talked about my job…it’s not my cat so there’s a 90% chance no. If yes, we’ve forgotten right? So this is brand new info? Cool. I haven’t worked for a bit recovering from surgery so it’s new to me! As I’ve returned I remembered what I love about it. I deliver food. Grubhub, postmates, etc…and my favorite part hands down is connecting with people. Workers in restaurants are fun but mainly it’s my customers. Ok mainly it’s their pets. My favorite line is exclaiming “I don’t think this is YOUR dinner buddy!!” Never fails to make us all laugh-and I mean us, because while I say it weekly I still think it’s newly funny. You’d be amazed what you can learn by a few minutes dropping off food. Last night I had the coolest family-the mom was so sweet, the dog was giant and fluffy and the toddler excitedly yelled “bye lady I don’t know!” as I left…so I yelled “bye kiddo I don’t know!” Also I was proud I’d kept their pizza so flat and warm. Self esteem man. Get it where you can. In the current climate of our country of fear and divisiveness-I can safely report there’s still a host of caring humans out there, loving their pets and others.

  1. Oh I loved this so much Ashley. You are such a beautiful person inside and out and it’s so important to connect with people in a world most don’t give you the time of day anymore. What a fun opening line you found to break the ice and instantly make a connection. Bless your heart and know what a difference you make. The world needs more angels like you ❤️

    • Oh man. This gave me happy tears of love and warmth…your words have left such a caring imprint on my heart-in my mind, everywhere. Also when I read out loud to Johnny she gave a look of slightly paying more attention to something than her tail. So I know it touched her too. We love you so much!!! What a blessing it’s been crossing paths through our words…we send a ton of support, well wishes and warm hugs❤️❤️❤️

      • Awe this is so so sweet and your comment equally touched me. Your reaction tells me that you are nearly not told enough how special you are and I am so honored that I could remind you about it. And I love that Johnny was listening too. Purr-fect.
        Sending much love, light and support your way. Thank you for being you and for being a part of my life. ❤️❤️❤️

I would love to read your words
