Pawn Shop Gifts Polite Boy A Fishing Rod

The owner of a pawn shop posted this photo and heartwarming story about a polite young boy who wanted a fishing rod but couldn’t afford to buy one.

The pawn shop owner posted the story to a local fishing group in Texas.

This is what he wrote:

“This is the third time, this young gentleman (maybe 9 years old) has come into my store. Every time, he has been full of yes sir’s, no sir’s, please’s and thank you’s. He’s been wanting to buy a fishing rod and reel.

Today he came in with five dollars.

Because of his extraordinarily good manners and politeness, he left with a $50 rod and reel, and his $5.

Go fishing, buddy. Be a kid.”
