Response to CaliforniaPeggy (Original post)

36. Let's look at this microculture through a different lens.

Suddenly one sunny day, a hooker in the small Saskatchewan town of Pumphandle has an epiphany caused by watching Little House re-runs on TV and decides to take a humanist view of life.

She runs to the guy at the Co-op and tells him because she misrepresented her abilities numerous times, she's forgiving his $100 debt and he can consider her past services a gift of love.

The Co-op man takes this moment to heart, runs to the pig farmer and admits he's overcharged him for years for low-grade feed and forgives his $100 debt.

The pig farmer takes this moment to heart, visits the butcher and admits he's been in cahoots with the weigh scale man for years so he received less pork than he thought and forgives his $100 debt.

This event bring forth an epiphany in the butcher that he's been watching too much Fox-Canada and should make amends with the motel owner, to whom he's sold inferior cuts of meat for decades.

The butcher visits the motel owner, apologizes for his corruption and forgives his $100 debt. This shakes the motel man to his very core.

A tourist visiting the area stops at the motel and to his surprise the motel owner offers him two free rooms for the night if he will cater to the other businesses in town. The visitor whole-heartedly agrees and brings his extended family in from his van.

The visiting family loves the town and stays for a full week, spending their entire vacation budget of $1,000 within the town, including big meals at the motel's restaurant, sausage to take home from the butcher, big bags of chicken feed from the Co-op and the family's lonely uncle sneaks in two late-night visits to the hooker.

The town is now out of debt and $1,000 more wealthy. The vacationing family is happy and will return next year.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is how humility, honesty, and a healthy community works.
