Need a feel good story?

I love these stories of big corporations actually doing the right thing. In this case, Costco went above and beyond.

Costco Saves Christmas...In July

The brief version of the story is that a woman sent gifts to her friend. They were packaged in a mattress cover box. Someone stole the box from her porch. The theif returned the box to Costco for $170. Someone else recently bought the mattress cover (or so they thought) and found the gifts inside. Costco went out of their way to track down the real owner of the gifts and offered to expedite shipping at their own cost.

How neat is that?

I know I sure as hell needed a happy uplifting, "See, not everyone and everything is evil," story. I figured you might as well. Enjoy.
