A reminder 

First of all I just want to say that I’m not sharing this story to come across as better person then others, I’m sharing it because it reminded me of something. 

An hour ago I hurried to go to the supermarket before it closed. As I entered the cash desk to pay for my groceries I see the cashier counting pennies for the woman in front of me. And we are not talking a few, we are talking 7 euros in 10 cents to pay for her groceries. 

I quickly could see on the woman that she didn’t have a lot of money. She seemed quite nervous and ashamed that she had to pay with only pennies. The cashier finishes counting and she’s missing 10 cents to pay for her groceries. 10 cents that for most people is something we totally take for granted. The cashier then continues to ask if the woman can pay with her card upon which the woman quickly answers “no”.

As I didn’t mind I offered to pay it. The woman looks at me and almost start crying and says thank you loads of times. 

10 cents.

I worry about how much my next horse is going to cost me. I’m an idiot.
