Last week I had a co-worker approach me and ask if I could loan them $5 to buy some gas to get home. Our checks are direct deposit, and they were
going in that day. This person had simply run out of money.
I said sure, and handed the person the money.
I never hesitate helping someone else, if I can. Isn't it what we are supposed to do? Help one another?
Well, later I was talking to another co-worker, and they asked me if this other person had asked me for the money. I said yes, and I let them have
They said they were glad about that, then proceeded to raise hell because this person had asked for money from others. They said that was exactly why
they didn't carry money on them! This person told them flat out, "No!"
So, what's the world come to when people get upset about helping someone out? It was only $5.00, and without it, this person wouldn't have been able
to get home. You would have thought they had asked for $100 the way this other person reacted!
So, I did my good deed for the day.
When I got home I had a letter from my doctor. Inside was a refund check for $5.00 where I had over-paid on my co-pay.
I hate to think what will be "coming around" to the person who was so stingy and mean!
What goes around, comes around!
