Make someone's day!

4372 days ago.

Have you ever helped out a total stranger?

I was recently at a QT to get an iced tea (big surprise for those of you that know me) when I saw the Growth elderly man in front of me having trouble coming up with 89 cents for a cup of coffee.  The clerk kept looking at the man like he had some sort of disease, just because he couldn’t come up with the money!

I politely asked the man if he would let me buy his coffee.  He was a little surprised by the offer, but allowed it.  He explained to me that his social security benefits didn’t arrive for another 3 days and he thought he had enough for that cup of coffee.  I wished him a happy holiday season, paid for my iced tea and his coffee and off I went.

I was in that same QT several days later and ran in to that man again.  I was getting my iced tea (again, big surprise) and he came up to me and asked if he could buy it for me.  I obliged him and off we went.

Wouldn’t it be nice, just to be nice?!  The next time you’re in line at Starbucks, a fast food restaraunt, anywhere, offer to pick up the tab for the person behind you.  Who knows…you may start a chain reaction of random kindness!
