Ms. Jones was walking down an empty street, when a boy named Roger comes up and tries to snatch her purse.
Ms. Jones lectures him and takes him to her house. By the time they entered her home, Roger was told to wash his face and comb his hair while Mrs. Jones prepared the dinner.
While at the dinner table, she talks about her work and all the people that come in and out the shop. She then told him about how she was also poor in her youth and wanted things she couldn't have, so she gave him $10 so he could buy the shoes he wanted.
Roger then makes his way out of her house, she tells him to behave himself.
He wanted to say thank you ma'am, but she already went back into the house.
