“110th story”

First Published: Sep.26.2019

A story by Laleh Chini:


Adam worked in a flower shop near the very crowded entrance of a subway.

Every day he opened the flower shop early, and after a few hours, the owner showed up to work. The owner was an older woman, very kind, and talented at her job.


She had been working at her shop for more than forty years. Now that she wasn’t able to be at her shop for more than a few hours, she hired Adam to teach him all her magic talent and sell the shop to Adam in small payments.


Adam was a handsome boy with long hair and attractive eyes. He loved working at the flower shop, especially becoming the future owner made him more passionate.


Adam was very kind and friendly to all the customers. Hundreds of people walked to the shop daily, some new customers and some regular.

One day a beautiful young girl walked into the flower shop and picked a ready-wrapped bouquet. The price was on it; she reached for her purse to pay. Adam started with: “What a great day today is, isn’t it?”

The girl smiled.

Adam continued: “What a great choice, white and purple is my favorite too.”


She smiled and paid and ran out of the store without saying a word.

When Angela, the flower shop owner walked in, Adam told her: “Some people are rude, when you try to be friendly they don’t bother to reply, not even a thank you or goodbye!”


Angela responded: “They don’t need to be polite to us; we need continuously be friendly and kind so they would come back.”

Adam answered irritably: “You are right.”


Adam lived in an apartment near the flower shop, and every day walked in the local park.

A few days passed, and Adam was walking in the park when he saw the rude girl sitting beside a lady. Adam waved at her, and the girl waved back. When Adam got closer to them, the lady said: “Thank you for the beautiful flowers. My daughter bought them for my birthday.”


Then she moved her hands in sign language for the rude girl. Then the impolite girl smiled and signed back.”

Then her mother looked at Adam and said: “My daughter is saying how handsome you are.” and laughed.


Adam started taking sign language classes to be able to tell that girl how beautiful she is and ask her out.

  5. Laleh what a wonderful and powerful life lesson. It’s so easy to assume a something about a person’s action or reaction without knowing the their story. We are responsible for our own actions. Treating people with respect, love and kindness is key. The owner taught and shared a valuable lesson that ultimately has caused her business to thrive by offering them Star customer service. The ending is priceless, it made a full circle. 💜🤗💐

  13. So true, Laleh, that we almost always cheat ourselves of the depths available inside when we put a toe in the water and judge the whole ocean by our limited view. Thanks for the reminder … avoid jumping to conclusions and trying to read into another person’s motive when all we have is a momentary glance!

  14. As I was reading this, I was wondering if maybe she had a problem communicating with him. It’s so easy to think the worst of a situation or person when we don’t have all the facts. What a beautiful and heartwarming story. Leaves the biggest smile on my face reading it. ☺️💕
