Charity

Just heard from my friend Mary W, who was at Gray's Papaya in New York trying to scrounge enough change for a hot dog. She only had $0.75 and the hot dogs were $1.25.

Suddenly a homeless man came and asked her for some change. She replied that she was looking for some herself. "What do you need?" he asked. "Well, I'm 50 cents short of a hot dog," she replied. "Here," he said, and gave her two quarters.

Mary offered to split the hot dog with him, but he refused, saying, "you should eat it." "No, you should eat it," she said. "You look like you need it," he responded. And she gave in and ate the hot dog.
