Read the PIG news...

Two people about 50 meters away are reading the sign inside Pig.

Another person approaches them and says: ‘I need money for medicine. Even a little bit would help’.

They respond: ‘We don’t have cash sorry’.

The person walks away.

The two people continue to talk about it: ‘So we have to unscrew it and lift off the lid? That’ll take too long’.

They leave. The money stays inside.

Observer 2: “Yeah and people would be watching… It’s weird. I could use the money, but I don’t want people to know that.”
