Shoutout to the Kind Stranger at Safeway

I was shopping at the Safeway on Manning and 137th Avenue tonight (July 29th) and I had a full cart of stuff, the guy behind me only had a few items.

I let him in front just because it’s the nice thing to do. Its not a big deal, I do it often for people with less items and I honestly don’t think twice about it – I have four kids so I ALWAYS have a full cart.

After paying for his groceries he handed the cashier a twenty and told her to put it on my “bill”. I protested telling him it wasn’t necessary but he insisted.

Thank you, really. It meant a lot. I never expected that kindness but it seriously put a smile on my face for the rest of the night. $20 is a lot of money in terms of meal planning so I appreciate it a lot.

ANOTHER GREAT POST:  Thank you to the Lady Who Offered Her Help at Wal-Mart

I live my life like my mom told me – be kind to strangers. Don’t expect anything in return, but you treat others as you would want to be treated.

STORY CONTINUES BELOW

Lately I’ve been astounded by the kindness of strangers in this city, it just shows me that I’m teaching my kids right, that there are good people out there and your kindness might not always be repayed but sometimes it might.

  15. This is such a nice read like you I do this often. Or elderly, sadly our world however is being taken over by the selfish me me me types but good on you for doing this and teaching your children as I did mine the same. 🙂 my daughters often complimented for her manners wether be opening a door for a parent, older person or using her please and thank you.

    I too let people in front of me when they have less items than me. They are always shocked, but to me it was the norm when I was growing up. Its called consideration for others and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of that anymore.
