A Well-To-Do Woman Was Walking Down The Street|
A well-to-do woman was walking down the street when she was approached by a particularly
dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman. The homeless woman asked the well-to-do woman
for a couple of dollars for dinner.
The well-to-do woman took out ten dollars from for wallet and asked,
“If I give you this money, will you buy wine with it instead of dinner?”
”No, I stopped drinking years ago”, the homeless woman told her.
”Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?” the well-to-do woman asked.
”No, I don’t waste time shopping,” the homeless woman said. ”I need to spend
all my time trying to stay alive.”
”Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?” the well-to-do woman asked.
”Are you NUTS!” replied the homeless woman. “I haven’t had my hair done in 20 years!”
”Well,” the woman said, “I’m not going to give you the money. Instead, I’m going
to take you out for dinner with my husband and me tonight.”
The homeless Woman was shocked. “Won’t your husband be furious with you for doing that?
I know I’m dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting.”
The well-to-do woman said, “That’s okay. It’s important for him to see what a woman
looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments, and wine.
