Unclear on the Concept, #3

May 11, 2007 psipsina


This is just wrong on so many levels.  Somebody hides a huge wad of cash in a pair of pajamas with a note saying, in effect, “This is a gift for the person who finds it,” and everyone involved assumes the cash is lost and is waiting for the “owner” to step forward?

If the “owner” had wanted the money to go to Goodwill as a donation, wouldn’t he have, you know, given it to Goodwill?

And Goodwill “rewards” the employee who found it with – a few gift certificates and a measly party?  Just imagine – a nasty cake from the local Piggly Wiggly washed down with some warm Sprite drunk out of a Dixie cup.  You go, girl!

Then again, I have to wonder about her intelligence – “I’m an honest person,” Owens said. “I was brought up that way. I’m always going to be that way.”  Well, maybe – but can you read?
