Being a salesperson gives me a chance to meet a lot of people . I also get to understand people in general. Most of all I get to see children and marvel at their intelligence and innocence at the same time.
Last week I saw two little boys playing with the wind-up toys that were displayed with the Christmas decorations. They were having a lot of fun while their parents were looking through the different choices for lights. Just then a couple walked in with a gigantic dog. It was healthy, clean, and very well behaved. So I praised the dog and complimented them for taking such good care. Then I asked them what do they feed him. Then the lady smiled and with a naughty look on her face said, "Little boys". I was not expecting that answer and was speechless. The couple simply walked away with the dog, but the two little boys left the toys and ran to their parents. I could see the fear on their faces. The faces of the kids, the size of the dog and the lady with the smirk are still in my mind. I just hope that the kids are not afraid of dogs for the rest of their lives.
