So when I left today at a reasonable hour, I wondered what to do with my time. I often feel that way if I happen to get done at around 5ish because it doesn't happen very often. I had been craving a nice grilled cheese from this little coffee shop Gymocha, so I went there armed with a good book.
I ordered my sandwich and drink, took out the $5.88 I owed and the two workers went ahead and got my order. They both forgot to take my money, until I had my meal. I made sure to stand at the counter until I could hand over my money. The guy behind the counter said, "thanks for being honest." I actually didn't think it was that big of a deal. I mean, what was I going to do, just not pay? But I suppose there are some people out there that would do that. I'm just glad it didn't even occur to me to be one of them.
