From Brian in New Hampshire…
A sales leader was focused on getting out the door one morning when her husband asked her, “Honey, do you remember what day this is?”
“Of course I do”, said the woman as she gathered her things, gave her husband a quick kiss, and hurried out the door.
As soon as she came to the first traffic light – she checked her calendar to see what the significance of the day was. She couldn’t find anything and she had no clue. But not wanting to take any chances, as soon as she got to the office, she quickly made dinner reservations at their favorite restaurant. She also sent him a text message saying, “I love you. I am taking you to dinner tonight. Meet me at Alfredo’s at 6:30.”
As one final thought, she decided to send him flowers. He was always sending her flowers – so she thought it would be a nice difference if she did the same for him this time.
Her husband was already at the restaurant when she walked in the door. His eyes were bright with anticipation and he smiled as she came to the table.
He stood up, gave her a kiss on the cheek and said, “Wow honey! This is great. I can’t believe you did all of this today.”
His wife replied, “I thought it was appropriate.”
He smiled and said, “Appropriate?”
“Yes,” she replied. “You asked me this morning if I remembered what day it was.”
He laughed and said, “Of course. By the way, you asked me to remind you this morning that your quarterly sales projections were due today.”
