Reward me!

A guy was digging in his pockets to pay for his coffee…

Him: Ow! My arms hurt. From protesting. You know, from carrying the sign and protesting.

Me: Oh! Wow. What are you protesting?

Him: I saved these two people from a car. It was a near explosion!

Me: That’s great! So… what are you protesting?

Him: I didn’t get no reward!

Me: Um… what?

Him: I didn’t get no reward! I saved two people from a near car explosion and didn’t get nothing for it!

Me: So you’re protesting the fact that you didn’t get a reward for saving two people’s lives?

Him: Yeah! There are explosions! Fires! Shootings! Everywhere! All over tv!

Me: I’m pretty sure that those people don’t all get rewards.

Him: (shrugs)

Me: Some people might say that saving two lives is its own reward.

Him: (shrugs) I guess so.

The more I think about it, the more I think he meant to say, “award.” At least, I hope so.
