Eric is not impressed

5 Dec


William Nicol Dec 5

The other day I observed that the reception from beggars seemed the same whether I gave them R5 or R100. Today, heading back along the William Nicol from the framers, again, to deliver a large consignment of lipstick hearts, this man approached me. Confession: I had a R50 note but something about him made me hand him R5 instead. These decisions are frequently made in a fleeting moment, and were I to see him again, I’d be more generous.

He wasn’t very impressed – presumably the car I was driving created certain expectations.
