" I were young once and I wanted things that I could not get."
She was a large woman with a large purse. It had a long strap and she carried it across her shoulders. It was around 11 o'clock at night when a boy ran up behind her and TRIED to snatch her purse. The large purse tripped him and he fell on his back and she kicked him in his sitter.
" Um-hum! And your face is dirty. I got a great mind to wash your face for you. Ain't you got nobody home to tell you to wash your face? " " No ma'am " said the boy. " Then it will get washed this evening, " said the large woman starting up the street, dragging the boy.
Ms. Jones told the boy that she was young once and that life was hard on her too as he sat there shocked while washing his face.
Ms. Jones and Roger sat at the table and ate as Ms.Jones told him about her job.
After a while, Ms.Jones gave Roger $10 to get the shoes that he wanted.
Ms. Jones let Roger go but before he could say thank you, Ms.Jones slammed the door.
