Doing the right thing….

“Thought those mailing to or from Ft. Walton Beach, Fla may need to know that my son went there to mail a phone this morning July 4 and found the joint unlocked and no employees on sight. He walked all around the place including the back where packages were laying to be mailed.

He did contact police. My son is honest to a severe fault. This could have turned out very badly.

Don’t you think this kid needs some kind of medal? I do.”

The above was a posted on one of the ebay discussion boards.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I applaud the young man.  He, of course, did the right thing.  But please tell me why that deserves a medal?  I didn’t kill my neighbor’s dog who barked all night.  Where’s my medal?  I didn’t pick up the $10.00 tip left on a neighboring restaurant table as I passed by…where’s my medal?  I didn’t drive off without paying for my gas….where’s my medal?

Sorry…..a bit testy this morning….
