Calling the Amish

Suzanne Uncategorized

A few days ago I called to make a reservation to stay at an Old Order Amish farm.

Amish teen answers phone (in barn…I hear cows mooing).

Me: So does that date work?

Amish teen: Yup.

Me: Do you want me to send a check?

Amish teen: Nope.

Me: You’re sure? I mean, the reservation will be held and everything?

Amish teen: Yup. Bye. (Hangs up.)

I love it. Just love it! The implied trust, the simplicity of a transaction. It’s like doing business the old-fashioned way. With a handshake and your word.
