While paying for my groceries at the cashier in WalMart, I bought a gift card and put $50 on it.
I told the cashier to give it to the couple at the end of the checkout line. The lady was pregnant and they looked so happy together. The cashier was amazed, I left before she finished ringing them up so I didn’t get to see their response but the look on the cashiers face was enough.
I was paying for my family’s meal at Mello Mushroom Pizza restaurant when the crazy idea of paying for someone else’s table popped into my mind. I told the cashier to add the tab for another family that was sitting nearby to my total. She almost screamed, she called her supervisor and told her and she said “I’m going to cry”. Wow I didn’t expect all of that to happen. Felt great though.
A few weeks ago I paid for two police officer’s meal at my favorite burrito joint. A week later I was there again and got ready to pay for my order when I realized I had left my wallet at home. I felt so embarrassed because they had already made my order, when I told the cashier she smiled and said “No Problem” It’s on us, That blew me away totally.
I make it a practice to pay for the car behind me at Starbucks (when I have the cash). One morning I was caught by surprise when the person in front of me paid for my Mocha. What comes around goes around.
