A first in my lifetime and only in a place where the "people factor" is still one of the most important things in the community, can it occur. What is it?
Purchasing items on an IOU.
I didn't have the cash for 3 yards of the pretty material you see above and the roll of bias binding. I am also notorious for forgetting my pin numbers for my ATM cards. Knowing all this beforehand, the lovely and very amicable owner of the little corner material store still went ahead and cut the material insisting I take the items with me.
I laugh when I think of her telling me I have a very honest face and she trusts me. Not because I don't think I'm honest, but because I know this will never happen in the America I lived in. I'd like to think perhaps in the small towns scattered across the States life might be like this. Does anyone know?
One thing for sure, she just won herself one more regular customer.
