Support Your Local Small Businesses!

There are at least a cagillion reasons why you should support your local small businesses but I had a first hand positive reinforcement experience today. I went to Who's Your Doggy to get pet food and I bought what I needed but it turned out I'd bought more than the cash in my pocket could cover. Didn't have my bank card either. So the following conversation ensued.

Me: Oh man, I'm so sorry, would you mind holding it for me and I'll be back in like 15 minutes with my card?

Her: OK, sure. Do you want to just take the stuff with you and call in your card number?

Well son of a bitch, yes, that's exactly what I want to do but what store in this day and age would let me do such a thing? Saved me some steps and some angst and just made me feel warm and fuzzy all over. I love that feeling.
