There’s this YouTube video with several million likes.
Its premise is this. The protagonist is out on the street, asking for a few dollars from passersby.
Most avoid him like the plague. Not surprising.
But the catch? He gives 100x back to anyone who gives him any money.
One guy gives a dollar, and gets back 100$. A lady gives 10$ and gets back a thousand!
People are so damn happy when they get the money, totally unexpected.
But there’s just one lady at the end of the video, who not just gives the protagonist some money, but also refuses to take the 100x. “Pay it forward, to someone who needs it more”, she says.
Would have been so good to have more like her, but clearly such people are rare. There are more people that would take a 100x from someone they don’t know. But lesser than those who would not stop to help in the first place ?
