So Juli was doing a little shopping for a Christmas party we're throwing for our friends and neighbors and she discovered that she was 1 euro 76 short at the till (checkout). The lady running the till told her, "Nah, sure you're fine. I'll be working here 'till 2, just bring in the difference later." When's the last time you were given an IOU at your local supermarket? Can't remember? I can't either.
Ireland's known for its friendliness and hospitality and this type of incident isn't uncommon here. It's nice to know that in a world full of mistrust, cynicism, and dishonesty, that there are still a few people who will give you the benefit of the doubt. By the way, while running a few errands in the village, I popped into Supervalu and paid the lady the difference. I thought we better live up to our end of the bargain too! - Shay
