Now for the third question…
I have read several stories on social media about people who have experienced a random act of kindness while at Starbucks or somewhere similar. After the recent multiple police shootings around the country, I read several stories about law enforcement officers having their restaurant bill paid by another customer.
Earlier this year on Good Friday, I placed an order at the McDonald’s drive thru and pulled up to pay for it. To my surprise, the cashier told me that the lady in front of me had paid for it already. I looked ahead and a lady was pulling away as she waved to me from her car window. I waved back astonished. She was a complete stranger. With the exception of someone letting me cut in line at a store because I had fewer items than they did, this was the first time I experienced something like this. I chalked it up to the spirit of the Easter season. The Deuce was in the car with me and gleefully witnessed the selfless act.

I looked in my rearview mirror and realized there was no one in line behind me. I was so anxious to return the favor to someone. The perfect opportunity occurred two days later. A restaurant owner had given me a “pass” on a take-out order two weeks prior when I didn’t have enough cash on hand. (Their establishment did not accept AMEX.) I was so embarrassed. So I ordered from that restaurant again and paid double for my order when I picked it up.
What small act of kindness were you once shown that made an impact on you?
See ya later,
