A dollar made me smile

...or perhaps the lack thereof.

In attempts to be more eco- and budget-friendly, my husband decided taking the bus to work is a great idea. And it is. So off I went to buy the 10-ride bus pass. Turns out they only accept cash and checks. Bummer. I thought they'd accept debit cards. The bus pass was $11, I had $10. To get that darn dollar would've required me to drive 5 or 10 minutes away. Add to that the usual charge when you use out-of-network ATMs. To my surprise, the lady at the counter said she'd cover the dollar. What a totally random act of kindness. She truly made me day.
