Old Guy Advice,

1. While walking from your car into a store, from parking lot. Stop at the person just finishing loading their car. Offer to take their cart in with you. It cost you nothing, except, a Random Act of Kindness.

2. Reorganize your silverware drawer. As a single Old Guy, this one is personal, 😁

3. Years ago, I got the best dating advice, ever.
" Dating and Love are like a candy bar, the wrapper always looks better, than the bar. Date and fall in love with the candy bar".

It's just not organized, MrsK was right handed,I'm left handed. The drawer is clean, just , needs reorganizing, to a left handed, me.
I washroom my dishes, I'm left hands, all that is good, then, I have to think, at the silverware drawer,
Right hand or left?

I financed my education largely from wages earned in grocery stores. People get paid to bring in carts. I never take a cart from someone unless they are really struggling with it. When baggers ask if I need help taking my stuff to the car I always respond, "Only if you really want to go outside."
