Random Act of kindness: November 29 2017

 

He
was young.

He
needed gas.

He requested
$14 worth.

His card
was declined.

He suggested we try
$10 instead.

The transaction
was rejected.

He apologized for
wasting my time and left.

Silently he sat in his car
pondering what to do next.

My heart sank…

The next gentleman in line
paid for his snacks
and gave and extra $10.

“That’s for the guy
who was in line before me,”
he said.
“I remember what it felt like
to be young and broke.
Go catch him before he leaves!”

I ran as fast as I could.
I was happy to help
make him feel better.
I was elated to witness
such a wonderful act of kindness.
