More interestingly that guy was niave. I mean in a perfect world you should be able to
do that all the time, but not everyone is as reliable as you are.

It would have been very easy for some people to just walk off with his
money (all be it £1.50) but I could never have done it. My conscience
wouldn't allow it, and I also felt sorry for him having to use a Zimmer
frame to get around. He would have found it difficult to carry some tea
and a burger whilst using his Zimmer.
