Money Matters

Okay, so last week I blogged about Son #1 finding a $10 bill not once, but twice. He was able to reunite the first ten bucks with its rightful owner. No real chance of that with the second bill he found.

At his request I emailed his teacher to see if he received his $10 back from the other kid (click here if your memory needs refreshing). He replied that he had.

Son #1 and I will research a couple of local charities and I'll let him choose which one he wants to donate the money to, I'll match his contribution, and we'll hand-deliver it so he can see them in action.

A few days ago, I go to McDonald's drive-thru and order an unsweetened ice tea. As I pull out of the parking lot and stop at the red light, I started putting my change away. That's when I realized the McD's employee gave me a dollar too much change. Yes, I went back and returned it, but just in case this is karma's way of telling me it wants us to have more money, I'm going to buy a powerball ticket (kidding).

That's funny about getting extra change back. I would do the same and bring it back.

I love the idea of giving the money to charity. You are teaching your son so well.

I always gave back if I was given extra change too :D

nadine, already he has a more generous nature than I do, so I'd better nurture that! (And follow his example.)

Me too, shionge. I didn't notice the error until after I left the parking lot, but was able to change lanes and go back.

There's a saying "You are who you are when no one else is looking."
