One day midweek in early December, my wife Carolyn, a resident of Stoughton, took a quilt to laundromat in Stoughton, her normal practice since quilts are too heavy for washing and drying in our conventional residential unit.

She put $2 in a large washer, but received no response and no refund. She removed the quilt and left a note explaining the issue.

About four days later, we received an envelope from the business with a single dollar bill enclosed, and after a brief discussion decided to say no more. Two weeks later, we received another single dollar bill — they had apparently discovered their mistake and sent a correction.

Stoughton! An honest and modest little city.

Carolyn in all her modesty, asked that I not use her last name, so I won’t.
