So this morning I was craving chocolate milk. I ran to the convenient store, took out $20 from the machine. Bought the milk, a sprite for lunch, Hostess ding dong and a scratch off. I never do that. I haven't even been in that store in months.
I just got a call from my bank asking if I bought some things at a grocery store in Michigan.
The answer would be no.
Now they are rushing me a new card because (1) I live 5 hours from the closest branch and this bank is my primary bank and (2) it's the holiday weekend. Of course, I have to go through my auto-pays and change those. I think I only have 2 of those setup, but I know I have my card on file for other places.
Good news is my bank was on top of it and didn't take the charge out of my account.
What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests. Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.
