To keep or to share
On behalf of a company, my shop organised the promotion. Customers were needed to buy a certain product of a certain amount to be entitled an entry to a lucky draw.
My cashiers were very obliging and we went full gear. Finally it was time to make a draw for the lucky winners. We got the winners and I had to phone them.
The next day, the winners came on time and the representative of the company was punctual too. We were happy to present the gift to them. I was especially happy for one of them. Why? Because she was a teacher who takes ration for her school every month. She always comes with another teacher.
OK, she received the gift and I expected her to take the gift back to her school. But no! She kept it to herself.
Surely, a question came into your mind. How did I know?
Well, I was in the shop this morning. Luckily I was there as I usually don't work on Sundays. But today I had to because the boss had a meeting.
The other teacher came to hand me the cheque for her school ration. Casually I asked, " Received the gift?" She said, "No." I was surprised. She was unhappy too as the other teacher decided to keep the gift for herself. But she didn't say a word.
I was angered. I decided to give her a piece of my mind but in a gentle way. I wrote in a piece of paper and asked the teacher to pass it to her. I wrote.."Congratulations! Please share the gift with the school as it was the school that bought the items. Thank-you."
I actually asked the teacher to tell her herself but she was afraid to do so.
If you were the teacher who had received the gift, what would you do?
a. keep the gift to yourself?
b. give the gift to the school?
c. share the gift with the other teacher?
d. distribute to the students?
