That kid has an attitude

Kate was craving for ice cream this afternoon so we bought some. Before we could cross the street there was this street kid who asked for my ice cream. As much as I love Ice cream, my tonsils are starting to get crazy maybe because of my consecutive drinking of vanilla and mango shake.
So I gave him my....

To my surprise, he just turned his back and didn't even say thank you. *drop jaw* WOW! that kid has an attitude. I told him, "hey! where's my thank you?"but he never turned back and just continued walking.

Here's what that kid taught me. When you give, never expect them to do good for you in return. When you give, don't mind if you'll be rewarded, just do it for free!

Meanwhile, Nuffnang's Asia Pacific Blog Awards 2009 is up! Nice to know. Jim Paredes is nominated for best celebrity blog. Take note, he is currently the only Filipino in the category.

Hello Yuli. Happy to see you in my blog. How are you? Voting for our own favorite blogger must be fun right? ;)

By the way, I just read you profile and found out that you might have alzheimer? I am interested to know because I have a family member which might have this problem too. Would be happy to hear from your experience.

hi curry! good to see you here!

My grandmother has an Alzheimer's disease and since it's genetically we may have it too when we grow old. *i hope not*

YULI said...

yeah...a friend of mine said that what would i expect, that kid lives in the street. i once volunteered in a program with street kids but they were very grateful and respectful to us.

Ah, that street kid. He definitely have some attitude there. If I were you I'd grab his arm and give him a good lecture on what proper mannerisms are expected. Afterall, he shouldn't be taking that for granted and preying on people's sympathy on him. That's not the right way. I've seen beggars with way more self respect than him :/

Thanks for the vote! I'll help out with your effort to make Jim Paredes to clinch the title :)

YULI said...

in my opinion, i don't think I'll be proper to do that to him. i don't know either how to treat him properly.

anyway,thanks for helping me out! :)
