Process Post #1: Stranger Encounter

Although I have been working in the retail industry for more than five years, I still do not like to start a conversation with strangers. I prefer to have customer shopping by themselves and they can talk to me if they need anything.

I was walking on Robson street with my friend on a raining day last week. I was holding an umbrella that the frame is shaky and I am thinking about getting a new one when I pass by the store. Then I see a guy sitting on the floor under the rain. As I was planning to pass by him quickly so I can avoid having a conversation with him. We made eye contact which makes me feel bad if I just walk away without doing anything. So I left my umbrella with him.

I walked for another 15 minutes to get a new umbrella. I got soaking wet but I am glad that he has my umbrella.
