“HEY! HEY! You dropped something,” I called out.
“Oh. Thanks,” he said. He picked the dough up off the sidewalk, put it back in his pocket and walked off.
Of course, there were a bunch of other people that were watching me at the time. So I didn’t have much of a choice but to do the “right thing.” But I couldn’t help wondering what I would have done if nobody else had noticed. I might have done that old routine where you step on the dough real quick to hide it, and then pick it up when nobody is watching.
What’s that old saying? “A person’s character is what they do when nobody is watching.”
I guess a lot of what we do when people are watching is mostly just for show.
