I saw this article on Yahoo News, about a Good Samaritan Paying a Stranger's Baggage Fee at Airport. I read some of the comments at the end of the story and it got me thinking. Has anyone on here, ever performed a random act of kindness? I am sure there are plently of stories of such benevolence from ADISC members.
One time, back when I lived in Ohio, I was at a Meijer gas station. As I was finishing pumping gas (filling my tank up) I saw an old lady counting her money, no doubt to figure out how much she could put in her car. I finished and hung up the pump handle and went inside to pay.
When I was next up to the cashier in line, I noticed the old lady hung up her pump handle and was slowly making her way to the store. I asked the cashier how much the old lady had pumped and was told $12. I told the cashier that I would like to pay it for the old lady. The cashier looked at me funny, then smiled and rang up the total.
I stepped aside and when the old lady went to pay for her gas, she was told someone already paid it for her. The old lady looked dumbfounded. "really?" she asked "well isn't that just the nicest thing" she replied.
I left the gas station felling pretty good!
So, how bout it, what sort of random acts of kindness have any of you done? I'd love to hear em!
