Even though the suspects were able to take money from the machine, it is not going to stop Coachlight Inn Motel from ruining the joy of running their business.

It hurts to put time, effort, and money into something for other people to enjoy just to get taken advantage of. But, we don’t have to let their selfishness sour our joy in running our business. And we won’t!
