Dead Dogs and Human Kindness

A friend of mine told me the following story about one of her relatives and I wanted to share it.

This young lady is working as a nanny back on the east coast.  Recently, the family she works for and lives with decided to go on a vacation.  While they were away, the old family dog died.  Not sure what to do, the girl called the family on vacation to tell them the sad news.  They weren’t too shocked, as the dog was quite old, and they asked her to take the dog to the vet so he could be disposed of properly.

The girl agreed, but later realized she didn’t have her own car and was going to have to take the dead dog on the bus.  So she found an old suitcase, managed to get the dog zipped up inside, and made her way to the bus stop.  As she was struggling to get up the stairs onto the bus, a man offered to help her with her obviously heavy bag.  Once onboard, the man curiously asked what was in the bag.  Not wanting to reveal the strange truth, she instead responded, “um… computer parts.”

When the bus got to the girl’s stop, she again began to struggle with the heavy bag, and the same man came over to help again.  After setting the bag on the ground, they both watched the bus drive away.  Then the man turned to the girl, punched her in the stomach, and ran away with the suitcase.

I just wish I could have seen the man’s face when he got home and opened the bag.
