Pay It Forward

For several months, our neighbor’s 18 year old son has been sitting outside every afternoon into the evening using his laptop. I figured he got a computer for graduation, and was using it outside to get away from his 2 young brothers – or just for some privacy.

He sits in his front yard, on a street with plenty of traffic, with the computer either on his lap or on a small table in front of him. I felt bad for him, so desperate to have a “room of his own”.

Until I realized that the reason he is doing this is because he’s using our Wi-Fi.

Oh well.
