Story: I Love to See Virtue Rewarded

This week’s video story: I love to see virtue rewarded.

I have a weird trait -- I can't bear any book, movie, play, or anything with the plot of unjust accusation. Oliver Twist, Othello, Atonement, The Fugitive...I just can't stand it. And I can sniff it out a mile away! I can feel this theme coming as I'm reading or watching.

On the other hand, I love any story in which virtue is rewarded. So thrilling. My daughter loves these stories too, and for a while, she kept asking me to tell this story:

 

Alas, virtue isn't always rewarded -- and one thing I love about this story is imagining the happiness of the customer, who got to be the instrument of virtue rewarded, for this excellent sales clerk.
