Reverse Culture Shock

Reverse Culture Shock

This is a real reverse shocker.

Believe it or not, says daddy, some people won’t take a moment to pick up money they find on the ground.

In fact, some people make so much money that it is not worth their time to stop and pick up a lost $100 bill. They can make more money in the 15 secs it takes to pick up the money.

Holy moly!

My daddy will still pick up a penny. Would you?

He is not stupid tension (Ed. superstitious) but some people say when you pick up a penny with the face up, it’s good luck.

Daddy says he is really lucky. But all his luck is bad.

Still, not picking up money?! Do people really not pick up money they see on the ground.

And why is there a nickel in the middle of the cross walk? Who drops money in the middle of the road? Or in the gym? Or at the park? What are they buying in those places anyway?

And why don’t people place value on money anymore? Big and small money.

How about you? When will you stop and pick up money? How much money do you have to see on the ground before you will bother to pick it up.

People who have lost their ability to place value on even small amounts are in need of some amazing grace, says daddy.

What do you think?

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.

    I think if you can’t pick up money for yourself, then you should be willing to pick up abandoned or lost money for someone else.
