A beggar woman was sitting on the roadside, holding a child and weeping.
Passer-by: “What is the matter. Why are you crying?”
Woman: The baby and I are both starving. We have not eaten for two days because I have no money.
The man searched in his pockets and brought out a R500 note. “I only have this note.
“You take it and go buy milk for your child and food for yourself, sufficient for the next two days. Return me the change. I’ll stay here and look after your child,” said the passer-by.
The woman did as instructed, and returned the man R280 change.
Passer-by ( to himself): Charity is truly a wonderful thing. The baby has got milk, the woman has got food and I have got rid of that fake Rs. 500 note.
