I think I'm just too nice.

It's the day before Thanksgiving and I went to Tower Records to pick up some items of interest.  Anyone who has ever shopped regularly at a Tower Records store would be familiar with the average sales clerk employed by the music chain.  So when I saw the senior citizen behind the counter, one would assume Christmas hire.  I decided lets go to the grandpa instead of the usual grunge employee.  My purchase totaled $54 and some change so I handed him a $50 bill and a $5 dollar bill.  He rang it up as $100 and began to count out the change of $45.   There was no way I could take advantage of grandpa who was looking to earn a little extra cash during the holidays so I quickly pointed out to him that it was $55 I handed him, not $100.  I don't want him to get fired on his first week of Christmas work.  It would be a great discount, but I would feel hecka guilty for taking advantage.  I can't help but think that most people would not have spoken up and would have walked away with an 80% discount on the purchase.   Am I some kind of chump or what?  I just don't have it in me to take advantage of people. I'm too nice.
