Time saving Generosity

In the market today I asked for 15 mandarin oranges, priced at 15 for a pound.

The young man who served me shovelled a number of handfuls into a bag, making no attempt to count them. When I counted them at home I found I had 21.

A few weeks ago, a different young man at the same stall gave me 3 pounds of apples for the price of 2; too busy to weigh them, he just put lots in the bag to make sure there were enough.

The deprived folk who do all their shopping at supermarkets never have such entertainment.
