One day, a blind man was sitting on the steps of a building with a hat at his feet and a sign bearing the words "I'm blind, please help me".
An advertiser strolling nearby stopped and noticed that he had only a few cents in his hat. He bent down and poured out more coins.
Then, without asking the man's permission, he took the sign, turned it over and wrote another sentence.
That same afternoon the advertiser returned to the blind man and noticed that his hat was full of coins and bills.
The blind man recognized the man's pace: he asked if it was he who had rewritten his sign and what he had written.
The advertiser replied “Nothing that wasn't true. I just rewrote yours differently, ”he smiled and walked away.
The blind person never knew that now on his sign it says: "Today is spring ... and I can't see it."
