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!
