Alice the street beggar


Looking across the street, Alice noticed a young nice looking gentleman with a well shaped moustache and a single dimple dat pricked deep in his right cheek. Alice smiled and thought to her self, this could be the one. He looked rich and generous to her. As he crossed the street, Alice put on her normal daily act. She folded her legs and sat on a rugged mat and raised her hands up and placed her head down between them. Eagerly she waited for the man to pass by her and drop a note in her hands. Minutes passed and her hope started fading. She raised her head and noticed the man had by-passed her without dropping a thing. She looked at him with bitterness engulfed in her eyes. What a worthless man she thought in her mind. The young man turned back and looked at her and smiled, as he faded through the corner a street ahead. A few minutes later she noticed a bag full of money with a note saying, your hands were to small to hold what I could offer, use this to do something productive with your life. She could not believe what she was seeing. She wished she could thank the man who helped her but it was already too late.

If you need help from someone, ask for as much as you need to get out of your current state. And appreciate people who help you
