A Great Deed: Supermarket Rescuer!

Last Friday, our friend John traveled from NYC to stay with us for a book event he did in Annapolis
 (I'll get to that tomorrow). I picked John up at the train station and we stopped at the Giant Foods grocery store so I could get a few things that he likes. During the check out, I requested $40 extra cash back. I went and bagged the groceries as I looked around for John. He came back over as I finished bagging the groceries, then I went back and took the receipt leaving the cash in the dispenser (Yes, I got distracted, and yes, I'm old).
  So, we left the store and went to the comic book store (Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, the best comic book store, ever) who was organizing his speaking event for the next day. While there, I remembered the cash!!  I checked the Giant supermarket receipt and called the store explaining what self-checkout aisle I used and when I was there. The service rep said that a store clerk (named Cathy I think) from the Pharmacy found the money and turned it into the service desk!!
   I returned to the Giant Foods (at the Festival at Riva Shopping Center, 2323 Forest Dr, Annapolis, MD 21401) and the Service Desk looked at my receipt and returned the $40 to me. So, I left $5 for the person who was honest and turned it in (it was the least I could do). 
  My faith in humanity has been restored from this wonderful act of honesty. I'm sure the people at Giant don't make a lot of money, and this was a wonderful thing to do. I'd like to think it's karma for doing dog rescue. Regardless, whatever you do comes back to you and we should always be considerate of each other. I'm thankful for this nice gesture.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
