A brief dialogue on Action

Homeless man (Hm): Please let me tell you One thing, will you?

Pedestrian (P): Go on then

HmWe do what we have to do.

P: Right… erm …

Hm: That’s it, One thing.

P: (taking change out of his pocket and giving it to the HM) Right – yes, okay.

(bewildered, he walks away asking himself: what is it I have to do? what is the right action?)

Hm: (putting the change received into his pocket, thinking to himself whilst watching the pedestrian walk away – Oh-h don’t worry yourself, you’ve already done it.)
