There's this young guy in my office and every day he brings in an old dirty, pitted bicycle wheel and puts it next to his desk. I couldn't figure out why.

Then one day it hit me. He can't afford a whole bicycle.

I'm a big believer in helping my fellow man, so I put $500 in an envelope with a note inside, "Please accept this and buy yourself a complete bicycle...signed "A Friend."

The result shocked me.

The next day he arrives with a brand new spotless wheel.

I was stunned that he used $500 to buy one wheel and pocketed the rest.

I guess it proves that "no good deed goes unpunished."
