Cute Little Old Lady

Yesterday when running an errand I approached a store and I noticed the stereotypical “Cute Little Old Lady” just inside the door. She was sitting in a walker that doubled as a seat, so movement was obviously difficult for her.

I wasn’t prepared for what happened next. She whapped the automatic door button as she saw me approaching … this cute little old lady had just gone out of her way to open the door for me! Shouldn’t that be the other way around? (And had the situation presented itself it would have been.) My reaction was somewhere between appreciation and embarrassment. In any case it brought a smile to my face when she looked at me as if to say, “Ha, sonny, I still got it!” All I could do was offer a polite and genuine “Thank You!”
