Just got back from Target. At the front of the line was a boy about 10. The next in line was a guy about 40 and then me. Boy puts up a skateboard and it rings up at 14.99. He looks crushed. He says very politely, "It thought it was $10, I mowed lawn all weekend to save for it." Woman behind the counter says, "sorry it isn't on sale anymore" grabs it and tucks it under and tells him he'll have to come back with more money. He thanks her politely but looks ready to cry as he walks out. Guy in front of me yells for the kid to come here. He tells the kid he'll pay the rest if the kid want the skateboard. Checkout lady tried to talk him out of it. His response. "I can afford it and I'm using a gift card I got for my birthday. I'm buying toilet bowl cleaner and underwear. Don't you think bringing joy into someone life is a better use for a birthday gift?"
