Sometimes being a good Samaritan can pay unexpected dividends.

Joe Christie, an aspiring rapper from London, witnessed a £10 (€13.90) note fall from a woman’s handbag and land on the ground.

Being a well brought up gentleman, Joe hurriedly approached the woman, hoping to return her money.

"Excuse me luv," Joe began.

But rather than being praised for his good deed, Joe was subjected to a cutting put-down.

The woman cut him off mid-sentence and retorted "Sorry, I'm not into Black boys."

So Joe did the sensible thing and used the ungrateful woman's money to treat himself to lunch.

Joe described the story in a recent Facebook post and the public are clearly on his side with over 103,000 likes.
