Years ago…we’re talkin’ like 20 years…I worked at Blockbuster. There was a couple who came in often and at one point, offered me a job at their pottery shop. At the time, I was happy at Blockbuster (it’s still one of my favorite jobs), so I turned them down.
I’ve told Bret this story a few times, mostly when we drove past the shop on the way to our business partners’ home. I’d also mention that I wanted to stop in but we never did, they were either closed or we were running late. A few months back, we finally stopped.
The shop itself is so much fun to browse, with tons of beautiful pieces of pottery, it is an experience. While looking around, I came across the potter, eating his lunch. He joked about this and then said, wait, I know you.
This guy hadn’t seen me in nearly two decades and he remembered me. Now, to be fair, I look pretty similar to my 16-year-old self, with the addition of a few grey hairs and lots of laugh lines. The wife actually remembered me too.
Thinking back on this it reminds me of the weight we carry of putting our best selves out there. People do remember you, so give them something good to remember.
