Honesty and integrity

Recently I was shopping at the Marysville Walmart store. The young lady ahead of me in the checkstand had purchased some items and then stated to the clerk that she had been in the store the day before and had purchased four gallons of milk, but had only been charged for one. She wanted to pay for the other three she had not been charged for. She produced a receipt and the clerks were able to accommodate her request.

This type of event is not something one sees every day. The clerks thanked her profusely for her honesty. As she was about to leave I remarked that her honesty and integrity were really admired by myself.

As she left the clerks placed a $20 bill on the counter. I yelled to the young lady that she had left her change, but she said that she left it for me because of my comment. I offered this money to the two clerks to split, but they informed me that they could not accept any money — it was a Walmart policy.

While many people can use $20, I believe that there are others in the community can get more benefit out of this money than I can so I am sending these funds to our local food bank. I believe our food bank does an exceptional job for those in the community who are not quite as fortunate as some citizens.

And although I do not know the name of the person who left the $20 bill, it is great to see the type of honesty and integrity she exhibited in the community.
