Do The Right Thing!
On Friday, she still hadn't made it to the bank when it came time to accompany her 8-year-old daughter, Sabrina, to see "Happy Feet" at 7:15 p.m.I bet.
Halfway through the film, Sabrina climbed onto Limoncelli's lap. To make room for her daughter, Limoncelli slid the purse under her seat, where it tipped over. The bank pouch must have fallen out in the dark, she said.
On the way home, mother and daughter stopped for ice cream. In line at the cash register, pint of Häagen-Dazs in hand, Limoncelli made the the blood-chilling discovery. The deposit bag was gone.
"It was like the longest two minutes of my life," she said. "I screamed at the operator when she tried to give me the address and I said, 'I don't care, just give me the number!' ... I was hysterical, crying."
What's gratifying is that the young person knows that.
Who Me, given what is happening on the Street, I think CF was paying a compliment.
I don't even think the "nagging fear of being found out" came into it. I think the kid just knew the right thing to do and did it. He also refused a money reward, which brought to mind Bobby Jones' comment about being congratulated upon calling a rule infraction on himself "Do you commend a man for not robbing a bank? No, you don't. This is how the game of golf should be played at all times."
