I have had several incidents where I was honest and was made fun of for doing so. That is sad to say the least and shows that we still have some social evolving left to do. I am sure part of it was my JW upbringing but with me it's deeper then that.
I deposited a $675 check and requested $150 cash back. When I got out to my truck the wad of twenties did not feel right and I counted $250. So I went back in and positioned myself in line so that I would get the same teller so nobody would find out. When I told the lady she at first did not believe me but then she found the check and turned white and then started crying. She was a single mom and eight mo's pregnant. She thanked me at least a dozen times and said she would most likely have been fired when she balanced the till that evening and came up with a $100 missing. She was allready in trouble for a similar incident and we all know what pregnancy can do to your focus and concentration. From that day on I was treated very well by all the staff at that bank after the word got out.
It feels good to do the right thing and it may save someone's job also. It's easy to have the attitude that large corporations won't miss a few dollars but the corps will most certainly come down on the employees.
I guess there are worse things to made fun about.
