I purchased a bag of dog treats and as I left the store I walked over to the panhandler and gave him the package saying, “This is for your dogs.” He looked at it, turned it over and read the ingredients. “It has corn in it and my little dog is allergic to it,” and tried to hand it back.
“I don’t have a dog perhaps you do know someone and can give it to them,” I said.
“Oh, she does,” he says pointing to a female pan-handler just coming out of the store to retrieve her dog tied to the handrail.
No one even said, “Thank you.” I must remember that no good deed goes unpunished.
