How Can We Help?

Home » Short Stories about Kindness » Day 11 – use your height

Share kindness: If you’re tall, help someone in the supermarket reach the pasta on the top shelf. I’m 5’10” so this happens to me all the time.

Over the years I’ve helped people reach hats and T-shirts on high hooks. Books and papers on high shelves. My most recent was to help an elderly lady reach for pork pies at the top of the fridge in the supermarket. She needed one of each flavour so that she could decide which to buy for her tea.

Using my height is such an easy way to be kind!

Plus I often get to have a nice little chat with the person I’m helping too.

What have you helped someone to reach?
