Customer: No, I don’t give money to poor people. If they want money, they have to work for it like the rest of us. I don’t like lazy layabouts.
Customer's Husband: Do you really feel that way, dear? I wonder if you felt this way 27 years ago when we had an infant, no jobs, no money, and had to ask my parents for an allowance so we could live. Now that we have money in the bank, a Volvo in the driveway, and a designer handbag on your arm, suddenly we are too good to help others? [to the cashier, indicating a large pile of books next to the cash register] Are these the books you're selling? We'll take them all.

This story. A kid steals something from a store, and the employee, instead of calling the police or chasing after him, decides to call him instead. The kid comes back, admits he wasn't thinking straight, and returns the item.

You know how some people like to hold on to the last thing someone ever gave them? This manager does.
