on tuesday night, i skipped out of work a little early and dashed into walmart to pick up a few things i needed. i purposefully tried to get in and out before the true *after work* crowd hit.
our walmart has recently installed those rotating bag kiosks - you know the ones where the teller keeps spinning it around and around until you have 14 plastic bags filled (approximately one bag per item, as best i can tell...)
so i wasn't too surprised that when i got home, i found a bag that wasn't mine! the bag included some deli turkey, 3 of the smallest bananas i've ever seen, and a 15 pound brick of colby cheddar cheese. 15 pounds? could've been only 5, but still...it was a huge brick of cheese.
oh, i did not relish the thought of trekking the 20 minutes back to walmart (where the *after work* crowd was no doubt milling around like lost sheep by this point.) but, we just knew someone was going to be missing that cheese!
matty made the trip. and to his credit, he *encouraged* the aloof customer service employee to make sure that they would make some effort to keep the groceries cold in case their rightful owner came back.
i hope they came back for the cheese.
does this ever happen to you? you should share your random acts of kindness over here. it feels so good!
