Ted, a Harmon’s Grocery Store employee was smoking (at least twenty feet
away from the doorway!) and noticed a pretty woman walking out of the store.
She had short black hair that went down just below the jaw-line.
‘How Europeon.’ he thought.
Alice walked out of the store in a hurry, passing an old man
who had a sign reading, ‘HOMELESS AND HUNGRY, ANYTHING HELPS.’
She stopped in mid-step.
After a moments hesitation Alice turned back to the man. She reached into her purse, produced a dollar bill
and handed it to him.
“Thank you, miss…” he said with a grateful smile and trembling hands.
She walked away with a smile also.
The Harmon’s employee was so impressed by the woman’s generosity that
he just had to tell her so. He walked up to the woman quickly, before she could cross
the street, and tapped her on the shoulder; she turned in fright.
“I saw what you did, and…”
Before he could finish what he was going to say, the woman dropped the items from under her shirt that
she had stolen from the store, and yelled “I’m sorry!” while running away.
He looked down at the items in bewilderment.
“Hmm…” he thought picking up the lipstick, “No deed goes un-rewarded, or un-punished!”
