Selling groceries. Smiles come for free.


I picked up a job at a local grocery store last summer to make some money before heading back to school in August. I thought it would be boring and soul-sucking, but I quickly realized that my co-workers were cheerful and enthusiastic. The work itself is pretty easy, but it's a great opportunity to make people smile. Everyone has to eat, so I want to make the chore of grocery shopping into something they can enjoy. This job has taught me that I can do great things with small actions.
