Secret Service

So, today at work the most fun thing happened! I have to work an occasional Saturday on the sales floor, it's fun and I don't mind it because it gives me the opportunity to meet more perspective clients. Anyway, this morning, the store had a few people in and I was working at the front desk on the computer, this gentleman came in, I said good morning, he walked through the whole store (we get a lot of husbands looking for their wives), I asked if I could help him, he smiled and walked out. A few second later he was back following these two women around the store, looking like a bored husband. Again, I asked if he was finding everything ok, yada, yada, yada...he wasn't very friendly. Then, I noticed the ear piece and thought to myself what does this guy think he's in the Secret Service? I went about my business, helping the two ladies find fabric to reupholster two sofas and pillows...then helping a few other shoppers...I looked outside and saw two identical Suburbans parked out front each with several men inside. Then, I finally figured it out...This was the reupholstry lady! So, the unfriendly guy, WAS in the Secret Service! She couldn't have been more gracious. She asked my name and then said, "I'm Jill." we shook hands...I helped her carry a bolt out to one of the Suburbans, surrounded by Secret Service. I hope she comes back soon! So fun! It totally made my day!

No way! What a cool story! So glad she was nice- I love knowing that famous folks really are nice in "real life."

That is soo awesome! I wonder what kind of fabric she was buying...
She always struck me as very kind and gracious whenever I would see her speaking during the election... I'm glad she really is :)
