Doing the Right Thing

JT bought lunch at school today.  I sent him to the cafeteria with a $20 bill and instructions to bring the change home.  It helps that he's just the sort of kid who can keep track of his things and so I wasn't worried about the change disappearing,  And my confidence was well-placed.  He came home with the proper change.

And a story.

Mr. H, the man who works the register in the cafeteria, accidentally gave JT two ten dollar bills instead of one.  And when JT got back to his seat and realized that a mistake had been made, he returned to the register, explained what happened to Mr. H, and returned the extra $10.

Between that story and the B grade he earned on today's grammar quiz (hereafter known as the predicate miracle), I'm a proud mama tonight.

What?? He should've taken that money from the mouth of the big cafeteria corporation and donated to the food pantry like a modern day Robin Hood. I mean, come one, what else would we liberal socialists want to do besides steal from "the man" and give it to lazy poor people. Gosh, Mama, I'm so disappointed in your son's lack of Obamanomics. (For all of you who may read this and don't know me, that's all dripping sarcasm. My sarcastic wit is just wasted here in the corn field.)
