So you have learnt your lesson then.
What lesson is that then?
You are only miffed because you were 'only' given £5 for your actions. Most people do the right thing because it IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO and do not do it for the reward.
Personally i would not give people like you the time of day.
Very shallow and very sad shabina
