I had a rather large, heavy delivery for a nice old lady today. After wrestling it up her porch stairs, she signs and asks me if I would bring it down to her basement for her. Usually I would have asked if someone was around for help since it was over 100lbs but she was a widow and living by herself so I brought it to her basement for her. As I'm leaving, she hands me a 50 and says thank you. This woman is clearly living on a fixed income so I said thank you but that isn't necessary. I tell all the guys I work with and they all think I'm crazy and would have taken the money. I just didn't think it was right to take money from this lady, who was obviously appreciative of me helping her out but probably could have used that money on something much more worthwhile afterall, $50 is like a quarter of a days work for me. Am I crazy or are my co workers just cold hearted bastards? lol On a side note, I don't know about anyone elses area's but I find it's the people who can least afford it that are most generous with their money. I know of a few rich people on my route who would have expected me to fight a 100+lbs package into their basement for them.
