Random act of kindness.....
Whenever I hear about random acts of kindness I think about how people unite and bond in times of trouble and catastrophes.
This morning I had traffic court, speeding tickets, expired registration,etc. After court I went to my local Huddle House and had a late breakfast with my wife who was able to sneak away from work. She works 6.5 days a week, so we took advantage of the minutes we had.
As we walked in, me being in uniform as usual, one of the servers yelled out, ĎI didnít do ití, and laughed about it. I replied by saying, ĎI havenít heard that one but just a few thousand timesí, and it became quiet.
Seated in the booth next to us was a distinct looking man, and a boy about 12. The boy said hi and his grandfather nodded. There was two elderly women in the booth next to them and one of them thanked me for my service.
As we offered and waited for our food, my wife said I looked appreciative of the ladies comments. I noticed the man and his grandson finished up and left.
We ate and asked for our check. Our server came over and said, your check has been paid for by that man and his grandson. She told us he appreciates what you do and keeping us safe and didnít want me to say anything until after he left.
For one of the few times in my life, I was speechless! Just about the time I think people only care about themselves,they surprise me, proving that their is still good decent people left in this world!
