The first man pass by the elderly gentlemen without stopping, however the second man stop and look at the old man with a sympathetic gaze. He reach into his coat pocket and took out some loose change that he had in there.
“Here” said the young man. “Take this and buy yourself some hot food.” “Thank you very much,” said the old man in a weak voice. “Do not mention it,” replied the young man. The young man continues to walk along the street until he came to the corner. He stops and turns right. To his amazing the old man has disappeared as he, he vanished into thin air.
Later that evening, the young man was sitting at home watching the television. He was watching that program about people who do good terms with others.
