Seven-year-old Girl Scout Vanessa Bergeron learned a hard lesson about life on Sunday night, when a woman stole $92 of her cookie sales money outside a Florida shopping center.

When Vanessa's mother Misty approach the perpetrator's car, the thief grabbed the cookie cash and floored it. Luckily, this tragic tale has a happy ending -- when a passing couple heard what happened, they contributed $100 to the Bergerons out of their own pockets. It's the best and the worst of human nature, all in one afternoon.
