Smiling...

Okay so shopping is SO SO very different here in UG...

Today I just smiled as I was in a store buying an iron and an electric kettle and an attendant comes up to me and takes the two items out of my cart and proceeds to check them for me in the middle of the store...and by checking I don't mean taking them out of the box to make sure all the parts are there...I mean plugging in the iron and waiting for it to get hot and then boiling water in the middle of the electronic section next to the TVs for sale...Now that's some serious customer service for you!

He even filled in all the warranty paperwork for me right in the middle of shopping, dried the kettle off and found me in the middle of the household cleaner section to put stuff back in my cart...

Most of the time, being in Uganda just makes me smile...At this point in my existence here I can predict alot of things that happen during shopping excursions but today totally caught me off guard...now I know for next time I buy any electrical appliance what to be ready for!!

Still smiling by the way...
