You Choose

You are on your way into Walmart.  You’re busy. Late. Trying to squeeze in a little grocery shopping before you pick up the kids from practice. At the front of the parking lot, there is a man who tells you he needs help to feed his family.  The only cash you have is a $20 bill.  You plan on using your debit card to get your own groceries.

Do you walk by, typing on your cellphone to pretend not to hear him?

Do you give him the $20?

Do you bring him inside and buy groceries for his family as well as yours?

What would you choose to do?

Why?

What would you advise your teenage children to do if they encountered the same situation?

Why?
