rarity

I was 67 cents short on my bill at Aldi's yesterday. The nice lady at the cash register told me not to worry about it. I thanked her profusely.

When I got in my car I noticed spare change in the center console. I counted up 67 cents and went back in to pay her back, locking my car door as I left.

She was very happy when I gave her the money. We had both done one another good deeds. I felt good.

As I went back to my car, I felt in my pockets for my keys. They weren't there. I pulled the door handle. It was locked. I looked in my window. The keys were on the seat.

I went back in and told the woman about my keys. I asked the use the phone. Because of my good deed, the cashier was very accommodating. She said I could use the phone whenever I wanted to and for as long as I want.

I called Allie and she called AAA. She said it would take 45 minutes. But they were there in ten.

The man popped open my door in less than a minute.

He said, "We were surprised that it was a gentleman who had locked his keys in his car. We got a lot of ladies who do that. But not many gentleman."

Which Aldi do you go to? Independence Avenue or The Paseo? My Mother-In-Law works the register at The Paseo location.
