A Quarter-Back Signal
Then he thought, "Oh, forget it, it's only a quarter. Who would worry about this little amount? Anyway, the bus company charges too much fare; they will never miss it. Accept it as 'a gift from G-d' and keep quiet."

The driver, with a smile, replied, "Aren't you the new rabbi in town?"
"Yes," he replied.
"Well, I have been thinking a lot lately about going somewhere to worship. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change. I'll see you in Shul on Shabbos."
When the rabbi stepped off the bus, he literally grabbed the nearest light pole, held on, and said, "Oh, Ribbono shel Olam (Creator of the world), I almost sold a Jew for a quarter!"
