business news in context, analysis with attitude

Let’s end the week with a really nice story from an MNB user:

After being on vacation for two weeks I returned to stock up at Aldi's and was truly amazed at all the new higher end products that are on the shelves for the Holiday Season. Then when I was going through the check out there was a mildly handicapped gentleman in front of me buying a few things and it turned out he had no money to pay for the few items. When I realized this I was going to offer to pay, but the cashier was quicker than I and voided the charge as an error and let the man have the merchandise. I was blown away by the generosity and the ability of the cashier to exercise this decision.

Good for the cashier. Good for Aldi for creating an environment that makes such decision-making possible.
