What WOULD Jesus Do?


Pardon me a minute, while I haul myself up on my soap box to give you a piece of my mind...okay, here goes...
Last weekend I sold a shirt to a girl who told me that she was under 14, and therefore there would be no provincial sales tax.(cas if your a kid, you dont pay it) I looked at her and clearly knew that she was lying, but I couldn't really prove it, so I had to take off the tax. What upset me even more was the fact that she was wearing a WWJD bracelet. I let it go, I mean maybe it was for someone else.
Today the same girl came in and made her mother return the shirt, and let me tell you, it was clear to me that it had been worn. It was wrinkled, and had makeup on it. I confronted the mother who told me that it had not been worn and that is how she got it....that was a lie, as I was the one who sold it to her and I KNEW it was clean when she got it. Instead of fighting, I returned it.
Now let me ask you this.....What Would Jesus do?
Somehow I dont think He would buy a shirt, lie about his age to get a tax break, wear that shirt over the weekend and then get His mom to lie and return it.
The moral of this story? DON'T WEAR THE BRACELET IF YOU ARE GONNA BE A JERK.
Thanks for listening.....I will get off my box now.
