Trust in Foreigners
The other day I stopped by Whole Foods for some good quality stuff for my gram. Midway through my shopping spree I realized I’d forgotten my wallet at home (a bad thing to do at W.F.). I had no I.D., so the store wouldn’t even take a check.
If I had been in Turkey, I could have walked over to my bank and solved the problem. Because after the initial set-up of my accounts, no teller ever asked to see my I.D. again. They just gave me money. Incredible, huh?
(I drove home to get my wallet.)
