Tell Your Face

Submitted into: Miracles Of Self Category,

On: 2008-06-04



Many years ago I was in the supermarket at lunch time around the corner from our practice in the local Shopping Mall. It wasn't busy, there were five people in the check out line ahead of me. Only one checkout was open and the checkout operator was a young lady who obviously wanted to be somewhere else as she had a dreadful scowl on her face. There was an elderly couple who had half a dozen items, one being a frozen chicken, then three other people with a few items each, then myself in the line.

The check out chick' was almost throwing the items down the counter after she had punched them into the register. Vroom, she sent the heavy chicken down so fast, it bounced off down the end and onto the floor. The elderly gentleman said, Excuse me, miss. Do you mind if I replace that chicken. It would be dirty now it's been on the floor? She scowled, All right. So I excused myself as I moved from the back of the line, went to the front of the line, took out an Expect a Miracle card and popped it on the cash register right in front of her face.

I said, Pardon me, are you happy? She scowled, Yes. I said, Well, please tell your sweet face! Everyone started to giggle. The laughter became so loud that it caught the attention of the Store Manager and the Assistant Manager who were standing back behind the registers near the front window, looking down the store discussing the day's business. They also burst into laughter, then the young lady started to laugh and I said, That's better, your face knows you are happy now.

Pople in the line proceeded to do their transactions and we all left the store one by one. When I walked outside there I found five people who didn't know each other before going into the store, all standing talking as if they had been friends for years. They stopped me and they said, Can you come over here? Do you have you more of those cards? I said, Sure. Can we all have one? Sure. So I gave them all a card.

Replying to their questions, I told them I was a Chiropractor just around the corner on Cinderella Drive. Two of them said, Can we come and see you as patient? Not a problem. It was interesting, by the end of the next week four out of five became patients . I didn't go out there looking to solicit patients. I just went out there to buy what I needed and there was a young lady who was exhibiting a behaviour that wasn't helping anybody. A Expect a Miracle card transformed her attitude and that of everybody in the line. As a result I met some wonderful people who became lifelong friends in my practice.
