I forgot to mention a nice thing that happened to me..
After I lost(then found) my purse but canceled my debit card, I headed out last minute to Aldi's (read: 10 min before they closed) for much needed milk for bff's kids and yogurt and OK I bought animal crackers and a 10pk apple juice pouches, and some cr. mushroom&chicken soup.
Anyway! I hit up Aldi's TOTALLY forgetting that they accept cash (didn't have) or debit (sorry, canceled!). I've only checks or credit card on me. There I am in the checkout, handful of groceries selected, clock ticking, taking up space, panicking. I move over to the counters, apologize profusely to the cashier and the couple behind me, and say "Let me see if I can find enough change on the bottom of my purse to buy the little girls milk"...
So, I'm digging around and the other couple checks out and turns to go and I say to the cashier, "Wow.. sorry, I don't have cash.. I'll put the items away"
AND SHE SAID... THEY PAID FOR YOU!!!
I seriously choked up ( ok a few tears fell) and I thanked the couple as they left. Awe. Sweet story.
