An old lady pulls into her driveway and slowly unloads groceries.
In the process, she accidentally leaves her purse on the hood of her car.
It's now dark and there sits the purse - just brimming with cash.
 
There are basically two types of people in the world:
1: One guy will steal the purse.
2: One guy will return the purse to the lady.
 
The thief sees an opportunity to make some easy money. He tells himself the old lady had it coming. She made a mistake and the way to learn is to get burned. He figures she'll still be okay, it isn't like he beat her up or anything - she loses some cash but learns a valuable lesson.
 
The hero sees an opportunity to serve. His joy is in helping a neighbor in need.
 
We really need less of #1 in this world and more of #2, not only as individuals, but as companies. I really have no respect for opportunists - they are the worst interpretation of capitalism. There are quite a few of us that grow weary of this mindset. Sorry, but the other guy making a mistake isn't justification for crap behavior.
 
So while I wish each individual at that company many blessings I hope the company and it's philosophy dies in a flaming vat of malaria.
