Mrs. Briggs


Opie shows some initiative when he puts an ad in the local newspaper to find a part-time job for after school and on Saturdays. The local pharmacist, Mr. Crawford, asks Andy if Opie is mature enough to run the soda fountain, something he normally would only give to someone several years older. Andy says he is and Opie is soon working. Mr. Crawford is so pleased with his work that he's actually leaving Opie in charge of the entire store for short periods of time. When he's alone however, Opie accidentally knocks over an expensive bottle of perfume. His inclination is to tell Mr. Crawford what's happened but his friend Arnold tells him not to and just replace the bottle. Opie does so but he also learns a lesson in just being honest when something goes wrong. Written by garykmcd
