Some Do The Right Thing: Some Don't

A California family found $10,000 in a box of crackers.

Rather than keep it, they returned it to the store from which they purchased it; apparently an elderly woman had returned the box to the store, forgetting she had stored her savings in it, and the store mistakenly re-stocked the box rather than discard it.

The old woman got her savings back, but couldn't be bothered to reward the family that had returned the money, couldn't even be bothered to write a thank-you note.

So: +1 for the unselfish act by the family; -1 for the ingratitude of the old woman. Civilization doesn't advance, doesn't regress. Rather cheerless tale for the season, I guess.

We can give thanks that this nice family probably did not need the money. They are blessed, anyway.

The Geezer has no class and deserves some more bad luck.
