It’s been a long time since something like this has happened to me, so I was really thrown off guard as to what my reaction should’ve been. Mom and I had gone to a family owned greenhouse. Most of it was accessible except a small building with knickknacks. Mom decided to buy this little birdhouse from there. I commented how cute it was and the owner proceeded to give me one of the birdhouses. Not sure if he felt bad I couldn’t get in or what exactly. I didn’t want to be rude and turn it down, so I accepted it with a thank you. It is cute, and I’ll use it, but when Mom had to pay for hers and I got a free one it was just…awkward! What would have been the appropriate response?
