The Bus Fare

Ah-ha Moment

Two ladies were taking the bus home from the mall when one confided in the other, “I didn’t save enough money so had to sneak on without paying my fare.”

“Don’t worry, I’ll go up and pay it for you,” offered her companion.

“Why? I’m already on the bus,” the poor lady replied.

“I’ve found that honesty always pays,” said her wealthier friend.

When the lady returned from the driver she was smiling. Scroll down to see why.

“See, I told you honesty pays! I gave the driver a single and he gave me back change for a five.”
