How to handle an embarrassing moment with Grace

This morning I was happy to discover the Starbucks at my local grocery store was festooned with this large Pride banner. I was encouraged to write a supportive message & was happy to oblige.

The banner was a bit low, so I bent at the knees to get to the right angle just as a young man stepped up to order his coffee.

Predictably, I tumbled backwards onto my plus-sized buttocks.

(Here comes the way to handle potentially embarrassing moments such as this )

I burst into laughter & quipped, “Now that was graceful!”

From my position on the floor I wrote a note on the banner and before I could even ask for assistance, the young fellow helped me to my feet. For that I paid for his coffee order.

“I’ll have to help people more often!” The young man said. “Thanks!”

And that, my friends, is how to handle a potentially embarrassing situation.
