An Old Habit and Ten Bucks
--by lovebug, posted Aug 3, 2007
As I helped her, I noticed two $5.00 bills laying in the street. You see, it has become a habit of mine to always for trash around my small space because I like things neat and clean. I think it shows respect for the people who shop at our thrift store. But as a result, I always look to the ground and that's how I saw the the two five dollar bills.
In a flash, I remembered a yound woman who had went into the beauty shop next door and I remembered her because of her shoes. So I just opened the door and asked if anyone had lost some money. This yound woman looked down and asked if I had found two $5.00 bills? Sure enough, she claimed it.
The young woman thanked me and told me it was her lunch money.
I was really glad I had this habit of keeping an eye on the ground. :)
You are a decent person. Best wishes
Job well done! Be proud!
