That was nice! And what really spurred me to mow my neighbor's yard yesterday was due to reading one of my friend's facebook post where someone paid his bill at a restaurant when he went to pay. Reading it caused me to think of doing a good deed, so I did.

My granddaughter was maybe 3 or so and was grocery shopping with her mother.
Tiffany loves pork chops, and asked mommy can we get pork chops.
Toni explained she would have to wait to see if she had enough money.
As they were getting ready to go to the checkout, Toni was stopped by an older gentleman.
He said" I overheard your conversation with the baby. I am a pork producer and if that baby wants pork chops, I would appreciate it if you would accept this package on me".
Tiffany is expecting my third great grandchild in about a month and still prefers pork

When Dad was last in the hospital, I ate breakfast at the cafeteria. The guy in front of me told the cashier he'd leave his food there while he ran to his car for his wallet. I paid for his breakfast. He seemed shocked, but I told him I knew all too well how far away the parking garage was. He was so appreciative.

Great story, Oldedeeres! That kind of thing renews faith in humanity in such a crazy world. I will try to pay it forward as well.
I tipped a guy at a gas station today 2 bucks (all the cash I had at the time) as the card reader at the pump was broke and he went and got an Ipad with a plug in reader on it. BUT he also pumped the gas and cleaned the windows at a self-service pump!
