Hope you lot are having a good weekend! Here's a nice little story for those who think their good deeds go unnoticed:

So I'm a bit of a regular at this sandwich place near my house. One night (this was weeks ago) I went down and got the usual. since I was in a hurry. When the cashier handed me my food and receipt, I noticed that he hadn't charged me for my chips and drink. Knowing I couldn't walk out of the place with the knowledge that I am stealing from them, I pointed the error out to the cashier. He was surprised that I even took the time to point it out. He thanked me and rang me up for the correct price. Just the fact that he thanked me was enough of a return for a good deed.

Fast forward to today. I go down to grab some lunch and as the cashier (different guy, I think he was the manager) is ringing me up, the other cashier from that night sees me and calls me out on my honesty to the others. I chuckle and say it's not really a big deal (it really wasn't). Before I leave, the manager stops me and gives me a free cookie (and it's one of those big cookies too!). I didn't see it coming and told them they didn't have to, but the manager insisted.

So to sum it up - don't think people don't notice your good character, even if it's something trivial. You may not always get free cookies out of it. but someone definitely notices!

Pardon me as I go enjoy my lunch (and dessert :D)

That's great fun! You see that a lot down here (in the South). Be careful or they'll fatten you up :D

Awe, that's nice. I predict much good karma for you in your future lives SC.

Pay it forward, and all that stuff. Can't hurt.

Very admirable of you. Strange how such gestures aren't more conventional though, isn't it? You perform some basic human act of politeness or honesty and people treat you like you're a saint. I guess everyone is used to people being selfish.
