Contrast

A woman was walking down the street when she was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked for a couple of dollars for food. The woman took out her wallet, got out ten dollars and asked, “If I give you this money, will you buy wine with it instead of dinner?”

“No way. I had to stop drinking years ago,” the homeless woman said.

“Will you use it to go shopping instead?” she asked.

“Shopping?” the homeless woman laughed. “I spend all my time trying to stay alive. I don't even think about shopping.”

“Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?” she asked.

“Are you NUTS!?” replied the homeless woman. “I haven't had my hair done in 10 years!”

“Well,” the first woman said, "I've changed my mind... I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you out for dinner with my husband and me tonight.”

The homeless woman was shocked. “Won't your husband be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty and I probably smell pretty disgusting.”

“That's perfectly okay," the other woman replied. "It's important for him to see what a woman looks like after she has given up wine, shopping, and hair appointments.”
