Miscellaneous : Pretzel Charity
A little old lady sold pretzels on a street corner for 25 cents each.
Every day a young man would leave his office building at lunch time and
as he passed her pretzel stand he would leave her a quarter, but would
never take a pretzel.
This went on for a few years. The two of them never spoke.
One day as the man passed the old lady's pretzel stand and left his
quarter as usual, the pretzel woman spoke to him:
"Sir, I appreciate your business. You are a good customer, but I have to
tell you that the pretzel price has increased to 35 cents."
