Transcript of Who Needs It?

Life in general should be of greater value than materialistic things.

This story takes place at a restaurant owned by a kind man. It's in a town filled with lots of people who
to have economic hardships. Nai Phan is comfortable with what he has and is very giving. People love coming to his cook shop-a drunkard man came to recite poems, young children came for sweets, and people of the school came to wash there feet! The setting feels very homely.
My Alternate Title
The majority of this story takes place in Nai Phan's restaurant. During the day he gives children candy and serves his costumers well; keeping them happy with his bright personality. He closes early to enjoy some time at home. One night however, an angered man pulls out his gun and threatens Nai Phan. but Nai Phan is very willing to give him whatever he wants, as he sees his struggles. The robber leaves with a better perspective on life and Nai Phan sells the gun for a new coffee strainer.
