MISSION: Men are Marvelous

First, THANK YOU everyone for being so patient after my website crashed yesterday.  That was so frustrating!  But I want to publicly thank two of my most favorite men in the world, Norm (@mrdirby) and Andy (@techburgh) for working their magic and getting me back online.

Speaking of wonderful men, I'm always so excited when I get a mission from a male Affiliated Agent.  I love that men are stepping up and showing their more caring, softer sides.  And when both women AND men are out there sharing kindness with the world, the world has that much more of a chance to heal.  Don't you agree?

Affiliated Agent C of Pittsburgh (yay!), who also happens to be a friend of mine, completed his first mission recently.  And I'm proud of him.  Well done, friend.

Date: Saturday, 25 September 2010

Location: Seattle's Best Coffee; Borders Bookstore; North Hills; Pittsburgh, PA

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Let's hear about his very first mission!

Truth be told, I struggled as to how to carry out this mission. Reading the previous mission reports, I wanted to do something different, but eventually realized that if I didn't start, I'd be just over-thinking things, knowing that I just had to go out there and see what happens. So I did this past Saturday night.

Inspired by a tweet SAL sent earlier in the week, I used a quote as a springboard for the mission. Truth be told, part of the reason I had trouble doing missions were how to present them while striking the right tone. I honestly don't know if I accomplished this, but I gave it my best shot.

When I arrived at the target location, I went into the store, and went straight to the Seattle's Best Coffee store. After inquiring, I learned that they did not give out gift cards for SBC, so I pulled out $5 from my pocket and placed it in the prepared card.

Seeing that a quote was supposed to be the theme, I felt that the quote should stand alone with no explanation.

With the standard SAL card inserted into the card and envelop along with the money, I handed it over to the waitress minding the register, handed over the envelope, with instructions to give the card to the next customer. I know that you usually ask for us to photograph where any materials are left at the target location, but in this specific case, I felt that discretion was the better part of valor.

Again, I hope I did this right, seeing that this was my first mission as an Agent. If not, I hp to do better in the future.

Affiliated Agent C, you absolutely did this right!  I love the little added touch of handing it to the cashier and giving instructions to give it to the next person.  Keep that kindness coming!
