I know you all are on the edge of your seat at this moment, blogging friends, as I am now about to reveal the answer to the question I put forth in yesterday’s post, When Money Floats.
What did I do with the five bucks I found on the floor at the grocery store? Did I:
– Give the money to the hungry employee?
– Wander around the store in search of someone who looks like he/she is missing money?
– Give it to someone else who needs it?
– Turn it in to customer service?
– Buy gelato for myself?
Drum roll please…
This how it played out:
I went directly to customer service and turned in the money! I’ll admit Blue Eyes ignited a bit of guilt.
The store employee didn’t so much as look up to even acknowledge me. My good deed wasn’t even enough to interrupt her work.
Half a second later, the hungry employee walked right past me. So, while I felt I did the “right” thing, it didn’t feel right.
The next day, I returned to the store. Oh yeah, I bought me some gelato all right!
The funny thing is I told Blue Eyes I turned in the money when we were both checking out. He told me he was going to go to customer service and tell them he was missing five bucks! I said to him that my lips were sealed, but he didn’t go.
Several of you, know me all too well and guessed correctly. I went directly to customer service. (Anka, Carrie, Leah, Shalagh) And, many of you just knew I’d find a way to get that gelato. (Audra, Cathy, Frank, Jackie, Miss Four Eyes).
Thanks to all who stopped by, played along and/or shared their stories. I couldn’t ask for a better group of friends here. I loved all your stories and comments. I love you, love you….I’m having a moment now.
I asked my kids what they would do. Keep it and buy something…Duh!
