How I Learned HONESTY

Honesty, it has been said, is the real test of a person’s character. But how IS this important human trait acquired? I didn’t realize until I got home that the bank teller who cashed my check had given me $150 too much. The next day I returned to the bank and went to the same teller. I explained what had happened and handed her the money. She stared at me incredulously and then, in a bewildered but thankful voice, said, “Most people would have just kept it.” One day at the grocery store I had to write a check for a few small items. I should have known better. “Do you have a check-cashing card for this store?” the clerk asked. I fumbled for my wallet and found the card. “May I see your driver’s license, please?” I produced it. I noticed that a lot of people were waiting behind me in line. “What’s your phone number?” I told her. As the clerk handed me my receipt, I asked her, “Wouldn’t it be nice if everybody just trusted each other?”
