I found my dream man!!!

No REALLY, I did! LOL Okay, okay let me tell you all about him. So it's the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday here in AZ and my sis and I get up WAY early to hit the sales at Wal-mart! (No we were not part of the trampling crowd!!! That's INSANE!) First, we go to Wal-mart and when we are done there we head across the street to Target. Now when we get to Target it is CRAZY packed. My goal is to find this digital camera for my neice put out by PlaySkool. (Yeah, I know she is TOTALLY spoiled!!) The camera is normally 50 bucks and is on sale for 20. Its a real camera but special made for kids. So like you can drop it and all that jazz and it won't break. (Maybe I should get one for myself!)
So I am searching all over for this thing and Its not in electronics. So I am trying to NICLEY shove pass people to find it when I see a sales lady that works for Target. I ask her where it is and she is like Ummmmm....(Basically she has NO idea!) Then all of the sudden this guy whirls around in the midst of the crowd and starts helping me look for it in the ad. I am like OKAY does this guy like work here or what?!?! BUT he didn't?! He was a customer in the middle of trying to find his own stuff! He is like Oh I bet it is in the toy section on and end cap towards the end of toys and he like wants to take me over there to get it and the sales lady comes back and tells me where she thinks it is and its in the total opposite direction of what he said. So i follow the sales lady and he zooms off to find his stuff. Turns out the sales lady was wrong, so I am just like oh okay I will keep looking. So I just kinda browse into the toy section and go to the spot that the guy told me to go too and what do you know...THERE is THE CAMERA!!! And there were only two left. I was just kinda standing there with my mouth hangin open. I couldn't believe HE HAD DROPPED EVERYTHING he was doing to HELP ME!!! I wanted to thank the guy for helping me but he was nowhere around and I wasn't about to search the crowd for him.
Now every girl I have told this story too including my mom and MYSELF is like. "Maybe he was an angel." Of course all the guys are like; "Oh BROTHER!!!" My lil brother was like oh yeah I am soooooooo sure an angel has NOTHING better to do than help you find a digital camera for your spoiled lil neice that is already getting a ton of stuff for Christmas!!!" LOL And I gotta kinda agree with him there...BUT still...LOL
Anyways, He was a really, really, NICE guy!!! LOL All the girls are like so was he really good looking or WHAT?! I am like you know what thats the thing; he was cute, but he wasn't really someone that would stand out in a crowd. BUT because he was SOOOOOOO nice it made him REALLY cute!!! LOL I think that must be how Jesus was, Not like Mr. Mchottie and not someone that really stands out in a crowd, but he was just like SOOOOO nice!!!
So guys this is my advice to you; You may not be the best looking guy in the world, you may not stand outin a crowd, BUT just keep being NICE! Doing good deeds can make you A LOT CUTER!!! LOL Believe me, Kindness and CONSIDERATION goes a long ways when trying to impress a girl! (Well at least it does for me! But then again I am NOT exactley NORMAL!!! HAHA!)
SOOOOOOOOOOOO what do you all think? Was this guy my Christmas angel or just a really nice guy???!!! ;)
