I was at Burger King yesterday, eating a burger and reading a book. A tatoo’d young man with low rider shorts and a wife beater tee shirt came to my table. He was hot and sweaty. The sweat literally dripping off him. It is summer in Texas.
The guy says to me, “Can I borrow your phone?” Skeptical, I asked where he was going to take it. He says he just needed to make a call. He came from the bus stop and needed to call his sister to get home. He ran out of bus fare. I gave him the phone and he called Crystal.
I offered to give him a ride home and he declined. I offered him a couple bucks to buy a coke. He declined again, said he had water. I insisted and he accepted with a big smile. I suggested he could do the same for me someday.
As I walked out of King Burger, he waved the money at me and yelled, “You’ll get 4 back!” I figure that was a pretty good investment.
