Once there was a homeless lady, her daughter was starving for food. The lady used to earn some money by collecting plastic bottles and cans. She saw a young man and said to him that "Can you please give me your empty soda can" He exclaimed 'eww......you're so dirty! Do you even bath? She was speechless. She said "Umm........ Ye- no, I don't..... He throws the can in the dustbin and says "if you want the can you go and take it from the dustbin. The poor lady goes near the dustbin and takes the can. Her daughter said that "mom can we eat something now?"
The lady told her that "Yes, sweetie, we just need a few more cans now" While the young man went in his car His mom said that "why are you in such a bad mood?" He told me that there was a homeless lady asking for my empty can She was so dirty! How could I even touch her? His mom explained to him that you shouldn't treat anyone like that. She said that one person's waste is another person's treasure. He found another plastic bottle and decided to give it to her.
The young man felt bad for how he treated the lady and went to say sorry with his mom. His mom exclaimed "oh my God"Katie! The young man was confused and asked his mom "Do you know each other?" His mom answered yes! She is the same woman who helped us many years before when we were homeless she taught me to collect cans and earn money. The young man was surprised to hear this. The lady too remembered his mom. The young man told sorry to both of them and insisted Katie and her daughter to stay with them.
