Congrats. I would have trusted also.
Years ago when Jimmy's was the "family" (AJ's) business they did niot take plastic. We sent a young couple thre who went to pay with plastic and found it to be a no go and they did not have enough cash between them to pay the bill. They still had the look of amazement on their faces when they returned to the B & B - after a stop at the ATM and return to Jimmy's - that he had told them "that's OK, come back and pay me tomorrow." I can tell the story now because Jimmy's does take plastic.

We had guests who were walking out the door the other day with a menu from a restaurant in another town. I asked where they got it because I love having the 'good' menus in the plastic sleeves fo guests to look at. They said they were bringing it back because they borrowed it and told the waitress they would bring it back the next day. So, they were driving 6 miles back to the restaurant to give back the menu.
There are good people and trusting people all over.

Isn't it a shame that this can not be an every day occurrence. - TRUST, that is. We still have a Auto/mower fix it place that does that - One of our kids' cars blew a tire while DH and I were out of town. They fixed him right up. I called to give them my CC and they said, just come in when you get back. Small town charm is still alive in some places. Up until a few years ago, they kept their own 'credit' system on index cards. People would come in each month and pay down their account - no interest other than happy repeat customers!
