I had to share this one…I went into a Christian book store this afternoon just browsing around for a few minutes. I found a book I wanted to read, and when I got to the cash register, the clerk asked if I had one of their membership cards. I told him that I thought I did and I started looking through my wallet.
I couldn’t find the card, and I told him I thought I’d had one, but must not.
“It’s okay. I got it.”
I thought he meant that he just used a generic one like grocery stores do when you leave your smart shopper card at home. But I glanced at the cash register display and there was my name.
“Wait a minute,” I said. “How did my name get on there?” I hadn’t told him my name, nor had I handed over my debit card, which was still in my hand and at an angle where he couldn’t possibly read it. It did occur to me that I was in a Christian book store, and maybe, just maybe, God just told him what my name was. But it struck me as a little on the boring side as “miracles” would go.
He then pointed at my jeans and said, “I just entered your name off that.”
I looked down and realized that I was wearing my Channel 37 ID badge. I wear it so often, I forget I even have it on.
But for a few seconds there, I thought I was in the Twilight Zone.
