One day when I was a young man I ran out of fuel in my car.

I was a few miles from home and without a penny.

I walked into a pub and asked if I could use their phone to get my Dad to come and collect me. They told me there was a payphone in the corner.

I asked if they had 25 cents so I could make the call and they obliged. My Dad came, and the following day I picked up my car.

When I got home from work the next day, my Dad asked me if I had stopped off to repay the 25 cents I had borrowed. I told him “No” as I had not borrowed the money but they had just given it to me, and it was only 25 cents.

He told me to pop in and return it, then he told me why:

“If you don’t return that 25 cents no one will mind, no one will even notice.

However, if you make an effort to return that 25 cents, then, they will notice your actions, they will all notice.
