“Totally Made My Day!”

At a gift shop at a small museum in Wisconsin, a terrified yet determined seven-year-old girl holding a 50-cent plastic fortune-teller fish walked up to the cashier and said, “Hey, um, I actually wasn’t planning on buying anything, but I was looking at this fish thing and messing with it and then it ripped. And I don’t have any money with me. So … um …” The cashier was impressed by the little girl’s honesty and said, “Oh, that’s so sweet of you! I know plenty of people who would have just stuck that in their pockets and walked right out. You know what, I’ll take care of that for you, and I’ll even give you a free gift card for being so honest!” The little girl replied, “Oh, thanks, ma’am! I was so scared!” The cashier said, “No problem! It’s honest people like you that are going to go far in life! Have a good day, honey!” According to the cashier, this little episode “Totally made my day!”
