Today I visited a local restaurant where I get food on the odd occasion.
I bought a $9.50 food item and a $1.00 drink --- GST included in the prices.
So:::: under normal circumstances, my bill would have been $10.50.
But, this restaurant's owner is usually generous::: he often cuts 50 cents off the price on a regular basis.
But when I handed him a $20 bill to pay today, I was surprised to see him hand me back a $10 bill AND a loonie.
My $10.50 meal cost $9.00.
I was thinking about leaving the loonie on his counter as a tip or something, but he seemed to insist that I take it.
Anyway ----- Though I kind of wonder if I really should have left him the loonie, I feel grateful for this restaurant owner's common generosity in commonly reducing the price of his food a bit. He has every right to charge less than advertised, I guess.
I guess this is just me writing a "feel good" story on this blog. Normally, he would just give $10 in change, that would be his normal practice---- but this time he was especially generous with an extra loonie. So that was just especially nice.
Just a feel-good story to update my blog with I guess.
