To the Editor:
Early this week, I went, for the first time, into the new Woodman’s store in Lakemoor to pick up a few items. After I went through the check-out lane and attempted to pay, I was told that their policy is not to accept any credit cards, only debit or Discover cards, which I do not own.
I did not have enough cash with me, so told the cashier to void the $40.00 transaction, when the gentleman behind me in line pulled out his card and handed it to the cashier as payment. He then handed me his business card and told me to send him a check for the purchase.
Needless to say, I was completely taken by surprise. It was such a pleasant wake-up-call to be reminded that there are trustful, thoughtful people out there. I most definitely sent him a check and will be supporting his business in Barrington: Primo Pizza on Northwest Highway. Hope you will join me there to pay it forward to this great guy.
