I was going through the checkout line at my favorite little grocery store and the cashier started scanning my items without taking much notice of me. I didn't take offense and started pushing buttons on the credit card machine.
He stopped mid scan and said, "Does your tattoo say breathe?"
I smiled, "Yea, it does."
He softened a bit and said, "I'm really mad right now. I was just thinking I needed a break or a moment to myself. And then I saw your tattoo."
He closed his eyes, took a deep breath and tried to shake off what was bothering him.
I had no idea my tattoo would be so user friendly.
