BMW paperman

One simple story to share..
It took place in a bus stop. I had been observing one old uncle selling chinese newspaper. It's a drive-thru vendor, where car will stop-by and the uncle will bring the newspaper for the driver.

A BMW 5 series came and wanted to buy chinese newspaper (costing RM1.20 i think). This BMW 5 series owner had difficulty to find small changes, all he got was RM1. So, the newspaper uncle told the BMW owner that it's ok. As a gentleman, the BMW owner refuse to buy the newspaper for RM1. So, he tried hard to find change. After few minutes, he managed to find another RM1. So, the BMW driver paid RM2 and asked the uncle to keep the change. However, the newspaper uncle refused and wanted to pay back the change.

This simple story teaches us to treat everyone with equality and never take advantage of another person. Let's make this world a better place to live.

Share with me your opinion ok? I'm sure everyone got their own opinion.

Agree.. But sometimes, there are people out there who like to make use of other people. I hate this kind of people very much.

Yea, I've been to the same bus stop almost every week. Also, it's not easy to earn money. Imagine the newspaper uncle has to sell newspaper even during rainy days just to earn the little profit margin. So, spend wisely..
