This Friday I decided to do something for a teenage girl whose mum refused to get her a new mascara. After overhearing their conversation, I whipped out my pad of paper and a pencil, and wrote: "Don't bother. You're beautiful as it is. So smile!" I do realise that that sounded kind of stalker-ish, but I figured it couldn't do any harm.

I wrapped it around the mascara tube, and replaced it on the shelf. Sure enough, as her mother was heading for the checkout, she picked it up in the hope of one last chance to persuade her mother to buy it. As she did, the note fell onto the floor, so she picked it up, curious. (I was near her in the aisle, pretending to look for something.) As she read it, a smile lit up her face and she laughed, replaced the mascara, slipped the note into her pocket and ran over to the mum, who proceeded to question her suspiciously about why she wasn't sulking any more. Ah well, you can't please everyone!
