I was grocery shopping at Aldi's (cash or debit card only) last night, and I tried to use my new debit card. I had trouble obtaining it, and I finally activated it the day before. Of course, the PIN number didn't work, and customer service couldn't help me. They wheeled my cart to the cooler in the back while I figured out what I was going to do. I had an appointment to meet someone to try and sell my violin shortly, so I told the Aldi's checkout that I'd be back to either pay for my food or to put it all away. The lady bought the instrument, so I had the cash to buy my food. While we were talking, she noticed my EMS patch on my coat. She told me that she was also an EMT, and she gave me information for a job lead. The job was part time, which would leave me time for my FT job, as well as showing chickens. The violin buyer was also interested in chickens, so I gave her my card with a picture of Seramas on in, and she got excited over my enthusiastic sales pitch. Back at Aldi's, while paying for my cart, a woman asked the cashier if anyone had turned in a cell phone; she hadn't. On my first trip to the store, though, I heard a rooster crowing from the salad dressing, along with other weird sounds that I assummed was coming from a lost child's toy. I didn't see anything, so I forgot about it. I asked the phone-seeker about her ring-tone, and when she told me about the rooster, I led her to the salad dressings and let her call her phone from mine. Voila! Cock-a-doodle-do. So, partially as a result of my stupid inactive debit card, I met two people who liked chickens, got a lead for my dream job, and was hugged for helping someone find her phone. Made my day. Thank you stupid inactive debit card!
