Today, while I was waiting at the bus stop. I was there for about 20 minutes. As usual, about 15 buses that I don’t ride pass by. Off one of the buses, disembarks a lady. All of a sudden she points at the bush next to me and exclaims, “Oh my god, there’s a hundred dollar bill!”
Yep, you read that right:
<font size=“7” color=“orange”>A</font> <blink><font size=“7” color=“green”>100</font></blink> <font size=“7” color=“orange”>Dollar Bill!</font>
I look at her briefly, then I look at the bill on the ground. Should I claim it as mine?
Before she could ask whose it was; before I could snatch it, some other guy says it’s his. Of course it isn’t. (I should say wasn’t. It’s his now!) I saw him come to the bus stop; he was nowhere near the bill. Even she was suspicious.
I hesitated, therefore I lost it.
I could have used that hundred dollars.
(As I’m sure he is.)
Just tell me that I did the right thing.
To lying, cheating, stealing, and drinking.
Always lie to save a friend, cheat death,
steal your love’s heart, and drink with good friends.
