Cornering The Mango Market

While walking to dinner tonight, we bought mangos the honest way with a .50 price tag that you dropped in the can. Never seen or met the owners of the mango tree, and probably never will.

I count this as a fine transaction, thanks to humanity. My faith is growing again because of this.

 
I buy eggs the same way

Drive up to the gardge , outside is a fridge
Take the eggs you want and stick the $ in a box
Always enough cash to make change for a ten spot

But I have said hello to the young couple that sell the eggs a few times

Oh, having faith in man kind is still vaild. We experienced an episode last Friday evening. The wife, son, and daughter accompanied me to my camp this weekend to watch me mow grass and keep me company for the weekend. Upon arriving into town that evening I always stop at the local dive gas station to get my weekend case of beer and other needed grocery supplies. At the register the guy in front of us accidently dropped a $ 20.00 bill on the ground when he pulled his chain linked wallet out of his back pocket (motor cycle guy, leather chaps, tats, scruffy appearance). My wife and I at almost the same moment (she was slightly quicker than I) said "Sir, you have dropped your money". He abruptly turned around, picked it up, and thanked us. He gave my wife a big hug and offered to buy our groceries. We gave our regrets. He then offered us his $ 20.00 bill that he had dropped. We gave our regrets. He then offered to buy my kids ice cream treats; though I already had done so. "Motorcycle man" (as my 3 year old son called him) said we've restored his faith in man kind and there is Hope. We told him it was our pleasure in helping him, to have a nice evening, and to "Pass it On".

I bought some tomatos from a produce stand a few miles down the road from our place last year in a senerio just like this. I didn't have the exact change and left 75 cents in the can for a tip for being so trusting! Pretty cool to see!

When the wife and I bought pumpkins last fall it was the same thing.... people will be trusting until they get burned.... its human nature for most humans..... but not all..... just sayin.....

I have an unattended backhoe and skid loader at our mulch bins. Wouldn't take much to jump in and steal some mulch or top soil. I just figure if someone is so low as to do this, they will get what is coming to them at a later date. Not from me. It will catch up with them.

I wouldn't worry so much about a load of mulch

It would worry me that someone would borrow either the skidder or the Hoe
