The Honor System
A bale of hay, two bags of chicken scratch, two bags of laying crumbles and 4 bags of sheep and goat feed.
Now, you may be asking what that has to do with the honor system?
On Saturday, I was running late with errands in town. It became apparent, that I could not get to the Farmer's Co-op before the Noon closing time.
I simply made a phone call...."Hey, Catherine, this is Meggie". You see, in a small town, the shopkeepers and I call each other by our first names.
I gave her a list of what I needed and told her I would pay the next time I came into town.
She, in turn, told me which dock it would be on...and, to look for my receipt secured between the bags of feed.
After loading my order, you can see I wasn't the only one who couldn't get there before closing time. They are on the honor system too!
This is just one of the many things I love about living in the country...
