Thumbs up to the lady at Woolworths Hinkler who served me at the express checkout last week and took the time to put an elastic band around my punnets of strawberries and blueberries before packing them into my bag, so they did not pop open and end up at the bottom of the bag squished.

Small thing but you know what... it really made me smile and think "this lady really cares about what she is doing". 

Thank you!
