I watched a woman in line ahead of me one day go into sheer panic because she couldn’t find her credit card. I looked around and saw people getting annoyed and the cashier suspended her sale so she could take other customers.
I motioned for the cashier to put her tab on mine and paid for it. The cashier was saying, “she’s getting cigarettes, you don’t want to pay for those right?”, but I motioned to put it all in anyway. The poor woman was blind with panic and didn’t see me pay, which is what I was hoping for, but the cashier said, “you’re good, this man paid for everything.” At first she thought I found her card, but I said, “no, I didn’t find it, but I want you to stop worrying about it and take your time looking! I’m sure you’ll find it now that you can relax.”
She began crying and hugging me and wondering why I did that. I told her just think of me as a friend and to try to have a better day than she had been having. I wished it could’ve been anonymous, but it made me feel good to help someone I knew really needed it at that moment. – Sean Homsher
