They took some books, but the bookseller convinced them, they must have a library card. Then, he made their cards. The bookseller asked their directions and their names and they said them. After that, they ran out with some books.
The bookseller knew that they were not going to return those books, but he had their names.

2.-The right thing to do
A man was lying in the street. Three different people stopped and looked, but nobody helped him. After that a woman saw him and ran to help him. She ordered the people that were looking to bring water and call an ambulance. The man said he needs pills. At that moment the woman looked for the pills in the man's jacket and she found the pills. When they gave him a pill the ambulance arrived, but the man is ok. One doctor recognized him, he was a famous chef.
The people who were ordered by the woman, were very happy because they thought they had saved the chef.
