Tuesday night was Open House. I took a break from preparing in the afternoon to treat myself to a 'fountain' diet coke at the nearby Carl's Jr. I was kind of hot, as it's been muggy, and in a hurry. As I pulled up and got out of my car, I noticed a kind of scummy looking young man who looked really unhappy leaning against the building.
As I approached the CJ's he asked me to get him something to eat. I did an automatic, 'no, I'm sorry.' He replied with, 'I promise it won't be more than $3..." with his voice trailing off.
As I was inside ordering my soda, I thought about it. I had a wad of money in my wallet. I tend to easily buy small things, like magazines, coffee (and diet soda). (That may be not the best use of my money, but that is another post....) Anyway, I thought, how could I not help him?
So when I exited, I handed him a few dollars. He asked if I was sure, and then shook my hand. Have to admit that I washed my hands right after.
How often does this experience happen to you?
