>Just When my faith in Human Nature Has been Confirmed…

>A Message for the scruffy couple at Bunnings, Kangaroo Flat at 2pm last Thursday:

Perhaps you were feeling guilty because you didn’t have the necessary $5 to donate to the Bushfire Relief Sausage Sizzle
So then maybe you shouldn’t have fronted up and demanded 2 snags.
You could have donated $2.50 and shared a snag between you.
If you didn’t have that much, you could have still tossed your change into one of the many dedicated donation boxes in the store.

but that’s not what you did

You waited until the server’s back was turned and dropped a 20c and a 50c into the plastic tub to make the appropriate noise, smirked at each other in that ” aren’t we being clever, getting two sausages for 70c” way, then collected your ill gotten booty, made a facile remark about the great job that the Bunnings staff were doing in the heat, and left

… but it’s okay because the next person [me ] gave extra
There have been some magnificent gestures from all sections of society this week. The sort of stuff that makes us proud to be Aussies … and then there is you!

    >Yikes. So they not only ripped off the relief, but were proud of it? Gosh. Yeah. There’s something to be proud of, right up there with catching an STD from a cow.

    >Grrr, those sort of people make me so cross! Lucky we’ve got you (and many more like you) to make up for it.

  7. >Most people really are good. But those few who live only for themselves make us all look bad. Thankfully, you were there to balance the scale for humanity.I’m just flummoxed by their behavior. And lost for words. Which is really unlike me…

    >I’m always so surprised when people do things like that. But I’m a strong believer in Karma.

  9. >That’s horrible, it’s sad to say there are mony people like that, I like to think it will come back to them somehow, but it never does. Sorry you had to be witness to that, bunch of jerks!

    >There is always someone who wants something for free isnt there, especially when there are so many others suffering financially. It always makes me angry. I would have said something out loud and embarrased them so they would think twice about doing that again.
