Just got a call from the hay contractor that cut and baled our hay in January. It seems we over paid him by $50. Wife was sure she counted the money a couple of times and I even asked if he was sure. We paid part by cheque as just got the neighbour who brought half to write cheque straight to contractor and part by cash.
Its good to see honest business people out there.
I think the saying what goes around comes around has just reared its head as yesterday I went to and elderly laidies house to paint a flashing I had put on for her last month. She had asked if I could paint it as I was leaving after I had replaced it, I said I will do it when I was next passing buy after getting some paint from our yard. She came out as I was leaving with a bottle of wine and wouldn't let me leave untill I had accepted it, then tried giving me $20 for petrol money. I told her I wasn't going to take her money and that I said I would paint it for her and was no hassle(it took 10mins) She is a dear old lady, must be at least 85yrs old with a heart of gold.

There is a coffee shop in Matamata - I went there a while a go for a coffee (suprise suprise!) ordered my coffee and went to pay by eftpos. Sorry - they said - we don't have eftpos.
Bugger thinks me.Blow me down but the offer was............

That's OK just pay next time you come in!!! [:0] [:0] I told them that I very rarely went to Matamata but that didn't seem to bother them. [:0] I ended up looking for an ATM machine, paid for my coffee and bickie and told them to keep the change!!
I asked them if they made a habit of this and they said they do it occassionally so I asked them if people actually did come back and pay and yup, usually! :D
