I was heading into London last week when I spotted this on Twitter:
I knew I would be passing by the Moleskine store in Covent Garden so I offered to take a look. That branch had sold out and the staff directed me to another outlet in Regents Street which was also close to where I was travelling. I headed off, and voila!
The notebook has been purchased and has since arrived at its destination. What did I learn?
If you don’t ask (preferably nicely – which Ed did), you don’t get, and…
it’s a pleasure to be of service.
I since found out that two other people offered help to Ed, even though he’s not (yet) met them in person. In the overall scheme of things – a story like this is tiny, and sometimes, small things make big differences.
