Do Unto Others

A few days ago at work one of our “regular pickers” came in. He told me he had just run out of gas and wanted to know if he could borrow $5.00 until he could drop off the load of furniture he had in the truck. I gave him the money. The next thing I know a woman comes up to the counter and says “Did you just give him $5.00?”. I said “Yes”. The woman was dumbfounded. I simply said “I know who he is”. By the way, I have never seen this woman in my life. Then the woman clicked her tongue at me. Clicked.her.tongue.at.me.people.  It pissed me off. I then asked her “Why does it matter to you? It is my money and I would like to think if I ever needed help someone would do the same for me”.

I think she needs to go back to kindergarten and learn the golden rule. In case you were wondering? He was back in about 30 mins with the money.
