Better think twice before being nice...

This was the day she decided to do it.   Robin works as an in-home caretaker and she had saved  enough money to put down on a house.  She was riding a city bus with $3500 cash in her purse that she needed to convert to a certified check.  I have known Robin for 8 years and I can honestly say she goes out of her way to help strangers almost every day. So I wasn't surprised when she told me how she was the only person on the bus that helped an elderly woman board the bus with her groceries and then helped her off at the next stop.  But when Robin went back to her seat, her purse was gone, taken by a young man who was sitting behind her and was now running down 51st Avenue  The other passengers saw him do it, the bus driver saw which way he ran.  But all Robin saw was her hopes and dreams vanish. Every dollar she had was gone. Along with her phone, her wallet, identification, credit cards, bus pass. The bus driver called the police then continued on his route. Robin waited 30 minutes but the police never came. No one offered to help her or give her a ride. So she walked home crying every step of the way.
