Today, I saw something very shocking .I guess this problem exist, but we don’t see it often or we just ignore it.

I was doing my laundry today in the laundry mart when a teenager stole $5 from the lady that was working in the laundry mart.The teenager went to the lady and ask her to buy a water, she had to leave the area she was working to get the water.On the table where she was working, she mistakenly left a $5 there,and he picked it up and put it in his pocket..

At the same time, he saw me watching him .When the lady returned with the water, he gave the $5 back to her and told her that he found it on the floor.From the look on the lady’s face she didn’t believe him.When he walked past me with his water,and he told me that he gave the money back to her.I felt very sorry for him because it seems he has problem.I decided to write about it and give some tips on how to react to this problems if we encounter it.
