Every Monday thru Thursday mid-afternoon, there are 4 gentlemen who sit in the YMCA lobby watching TV after a brief swim, just chatting. I call them 'The Guys'.
They flirt with me, give me a hard time about anything they can think of, and thank me for spending time with them every chance I get.
I bring them donuts from time to time as I live very close to the Old Town Donuts location in Florissant.
I am now known as the ‘Sunshine Donut Lady’.
Yesterday when I came in to work there was a lady sitting with them. They told her about me bringing in donuts. She asked me where the days’ donuts were.
I walked over to the gentlemen and jokingly said, "Guys, you know donuts don't grow on trees. I can only bring them so often on my budget."
They immediately went into their wallets and offered to pitch in and pay for them. “Don't bother, it's my pleasure,” I said. “I was only joking.”
When I came in to work today...this is what I found on my desk.
I guess they showed me that donuts really do grow on trees...they even included a coupon with the card!
I love this job!
