This morning a mom came up to me at school. She said, “I’m sorry I have been unable to volunteer to help for the school musical. We are grateful for everything you do.” Then she handed me a $25 check made out to Sharolyn Borris.
Surprised, I said, “Oh, this is help with the budget for costumes,” or some teacherly thing similar to that. She said, “It’s for you, do with it what you want.”
Although it is not a large sum of money, what I do with it reveals my character. What would you do?
1) Spend it on yourself. She said it was for me.
2) Cash the check and buy something for school.
3) Shred it, as the tax payers and P.T.A. have already paid me.
