Help Is Always Hiring

, , , , | Hopeless | March 24, 2016

(My cousin has had many problems in his life that left him homeless and jobless. He approaches two strangers, trying to get some money to buy some food.)

Cousin: “Hey man, could you spare a little change so I could get something to eat?”

Stranger #1: “Why don’t you some work experience and get a job, you bum?!”

Cousin: “Okay, are you hiring?”

Stranger #1: “What?! No!”

Cousin: “Well, it sounded like you were offering. How am I supposed to get experience if nobody hires me?”

Stranger #1: *silence*

Stranger #2: “He does have a point. You don’t know his life or what he has been through.” *to my cousin* “Here, buy yourself a sandwich.” *hands my cousin $20* “Have a nicer day.”

(Stranger #1 walks off as my cousin thanks Stranger #2. My cousin eventually got hired by an old friend and moved to Missouri. He is doing much better now and continues to pay forward the kindness of Stranger #2.)
