Cashier digs deep

  • Print

DEEPEST thanks again to the Superstore grocery store clerk who saved my butt recently.

I was a single parent running errands in a borrowed car, so there could not have been a worse time to discover my credit card had disappeared. It happened just as all my groceries were rung through and there was a long lineup behind me and a tired kid beside me.

I unsuccessfully looked through my purse, phoned staff at the last store I had shopped at and realized I had only $30 to pay for the $90 worth of groceries we needed to get us through the week.

My cashier, A., then did something thoughtful — and unexpected — given how untrusting most people are of strangers: She offered to lend me $60 herself.

Thanks again, A., for bailing me out of a stressful and embarrassing situation.
