I was shopping at the Metro down the street the other day and I ran in a problem: I had no change to unlock a grocery cart.
You know the pesky little things I'm talking about. Whenever I see that little slot with the key in it my stomach drops a little. Not because I have a problem with using them as an incentive to return the carts to their proper place but because I almost never have change for them. And if I do, it never seems to be the amount those carts want, nay demand from me.
So I withdrew twenty bucks from the ATM, stood in line for the customer service person and asked her for change for the lock. Without blinking she opened up her till, handed me a quarter and told me to "Just bring it back when you're done shopping, honey".
That might not seem like much, but it sure made my day.
