I got home and started putting groceries away. Where the heck was that wonderful Bear Creek Farms dry minestrone soup mix? Ugh. Must have left a bag there on that revolving sack thing. I called the service desk to see if a forgotten bag was returned. (Yes, two.) Did one have a dry soup mix in it? (Yes.) Could I tell her what else I noticed missing? (I drew a blank.) Did I keep my receipt? (No,).. threw it away on the way out since I knew I'd gotten everything. Can you come in right away to talk about it? (See you in 15 minutes.)

I flunked the "what else" test in person as cold as I did over the phone. "You left 3 items, sir.". (expectant look, no answer). "Let me help you."

"What do you drink in the morning?" Coffee. DING! "Think what goes good with cheese or soup?". Saltine crackers. DING! She was laughing and so was I. "If you're married, your wife might need these to take off her makeup?". The test was over. I've seen her do this a lot....cotton balls. DING, DING!!

Most enjoyable experience ever at the WMT service desk!
