Persistence Pays Off

A Chinese Morality Tale
Morning Edition, January 23, 2007 ยท A teacher in China had her bag stolen, losing her cell phone, credit cards and a lot of cash. Instead of calling police, a Chinese news agency reports, the woman sent text messages to her phone. "Keep the (money) if you really need it," she wrote, "to err is human. Correcting your mistakes is more important." After 21 messages, the thief returned the bag, the money and a note begging forgiveness.

After 21 messages, the thief probably had enough.
