George decided to dress like a beggar to test who would help him, and only 11-year-old Lily did. She also said something intriguing to him. The next day, George showed up at her doorstep and revealed something shocking to her father.
At 78 years old, George was ready to draft his will. He had done it years ago but kept putting it off. It was time to do so now, but he didn’t think any of his children or grandchildren deserved his considerable fortune. So he came up with a plan.
George dressed in the poorest clothes he could find at home and sat down on the street with a hat in front of him, hoping someone would give him some pennies. He would help out the first person who offered him charity no matter what.
Sadly, this endeavor was fruitless. People on the streets of a small town in Washington passed him by without even a glance. Everyone ignored him, and it was getting late. By then, George had decided to give everything to some random organization and be done for the day.
Before heading home, he dropped by the supermarket intent on buying a cupcake and some milk to remind himself of the simple things in life. There was only a young girl in front of him, and she saw what he had picked out.
“Don’t worry, sir. I’ll get that,” the girl said, signaling for the cashier to ring George’s items.
“What? No, girl. I can pay for that,” George declined, but the girl didn’t want to take no for an answer.
