Yes I am still here!

Sorry I haven't written lately, but have been quite busy of late.

Just wanted to write a bit on honesty.

Today I returned something I had purchased about a week ago.

I didn't have the receipt, but took back anyway.

The original price was 34.95 but luckily I had a coupon, a $10 one at that.

Well when I returned it today, they gave me the original purchase price.

I could have just taken the money and run,

but I just couldn't!

I told the clerk about the error. He looked at me strangely, like are you for real.

He thanked me profusely for being so honest. All the while looking at me

like I had 2 heads.

I just couldn't in clear conscious keep it.

I am not saying all this for a pat on the back, just thinking aloud I guess

and wondering how many would just have taken the $10.

I would have done the same thing. Honesty is such a lacking trait in so many. It's a shame too.

Great to see a post from you and have a terrific day. :)

as a worker in a retail store I can't tell you how many people would have just lied by omission.

As a store personnel, I thank you, those refunds come out of our daily goal!

Many would keep quiet, although I am often happily surprised by the good things people do.
