Every Monday through 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 doughnuts from time to time as I live very close to the Old Town Donuts location in Florissant.
I am now known as the "Sunshine Doughnut Lady."
Yesterday when I came in to work there was a lady sitting with them. They told her about me bringing in doughnuts. She asked me where the days’ doughnuts were.
I walked over to the gentlemen and jokingly said, "Guys, you know doughnuts 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, I found something special on my desk.
I guess they showed me that doughnuts really do grow on trees...they
even included a coupon with the card!
I love this job!
