Channeling Christopher Robin: “If you look in the right place . . .” December 2, 2010

One of the great joys of working in retail is the range of personalities of my colleagues. While universally brilliant and comedic, their other characteristics are so riotously diverse as to fill a noisy football stadium.

This extends to conversations with them.

Last night, after 10:00P, only a few days removed from the tiring pace of Black Friday, a colleague was amazed that she was able locate merchandise previously believed undiscoverable. When she ruled out all the places the merchandise might be, and went to where it was supposed to be, she found the missing goods. With a lighning bolt of insight, she proclaimed the following:

If you look in the right place, you’ll actually find what you’re looking for.”

The insane eloguence of her comment combined with her stunning timing — she reacts as well as any performer –drove me to my knees laughing. The whole moment reminded me of Christopher Robin talking with Winnie the Pooh.

For the shear joy of reliving an excellent moment, the whole sentence is repeated here:

If you look in the right place, you’ll actually find what you’re looking for.”

Thanks, Chris. And please say hello to Pooh.
