At the grocery store, a very young man tries to withdraw $40 from the ATM. Two $20 bills come out and then a crumpled third bill emerges. The young man panicks, tried to push it back in, but the bill won’t go back.
“I’m sorry, do you know what I should do?” the young man asks the store worker who is passing by.
“Take it,” the worker replies.
“It’s not mine,” the young guy explains. “I only withdrew $40.”
“Take it. It’s a bonus the machine is giving out today,” the store worker says.
“Oh,” says the young guy. “Oh. Thank you. Thank you very much. Thanks!” And he runs away, beaming.
The worker turns around and sees me waiting in the corner with the stroller.
“Of course, the bank gives no bonus,” he explains. “Like it ever would. But the kid looked like he could really use the money.”
