Today’s rich kids

This is what I saw today at a MacDonald’s during lunch time.

A teenage boy made an order at the counter.  As he was leaving with his order, he dropped his change of 3 10-cents coins.  Being aware of his dropping the coins, he kicked them closer to the wall of the counter, and walked away.  He didn’t bother to pick up his change.  The 30-cents was nothing to him.

It just shows how some kids do not appreciate the value of money, nor how hard their parents have to work to earn the money.  It also shows how some parents are not educating their kids the right things in life.  Maybe one day he will learn the hard way.

So what happened to the 30-cents?  I picked them up after my meal, and put them into the Ronald MacDonald’s Children Charity box.  There are some kids who can benefit from them.

    I don’t find that bad… my friend (who’s father owns a reknown kindergarden) NEVER takes back change in the form of coins, even if it’s $1 or $1.50.
    Do I find his behaviour weird?

    I’ll admit I’m like that sometimes. once, when I was out with my friends, and I bought a hot-dog that returned with 3 cents. who does anything with 3 cents?
    so I saw down with my friend to eat the hot dog while throwing the cents on the ground to see who picks them up. it was kinda funny actually. hahaha

    *btw, I’m only 14 and I go to an international school though I’m Malaysian. 🙂
    I guess the ‘rich’ do have it easier.
