Stopped at a gas station. Went in to pay and saw a five dollar bill on the sidewalk. Immediately I thought that this was a gag, or was one of those religious tracts printed to look like half of a five dollar bill but when you pick it up it says I really need Jesus, not the $5. So I didn’t pick it up.
As I started out, I decided, ok, what’s the worse that can happen? It be tied to fishing line and somebody jerk it and film me looking stupid? So I picked it up and it was real.
I turned around, went back in, handed it to the clerk and said, “Somebody dropped this.”
The look on her face was incredible (and worth ponying up the five bucks!). Really. Her mouth dropped open, her eyes were as wide as the proverbial saucers and she exclaimed: “Oh my gawd! I’ve NEVER seen anybody do that!” [referencing bringing the $5 in]
We are expected to do the unexpected…
