Kindness of a stranger at Subway

Friday, November 06, 2009

My husband and I went bike riding today and then stopped at a Subway for lunch afterwards. While waiting to pay for our order, the lady in front of us asked me if either of us was going to get a 6" sandwich. I said my husband was, so she handed the cashier a coupon and said "now his is free, right?" and the cashier said "yes". I said "did you just pay for his?" and the lady smiled and said "yes". (I think she had a coupon for buy one get one free and she gave us the free one!). I said "that was so nice of you, thank you so much"! She said "you're welcome" and smiled. I told her we would "pass it on". The cashier said "there are still good people in the world". I said "sometimes I pay for the person behind me at the drive thru at McDonalds, and so good deeds do come back to you" She agreed and said sometimes they take awhile, but you never know. On the way out I told my husband "you do realize that lady paid for your sandwich don't you?" and he said "no! I would have thanked her too" really don't pay attention to things sometimes. I told him I thanked her though. It was such a blessing to have a complete stranger do something nice like that. I prayed and asked God to bless that lady, whoever she is.

Just wanted to share that with others. Do something good, you never know when it will be given back to you-even at a Subway Restaurant!

    I once had someone forward change to me at a grocery checkout so I could get out of his way that much quicker (I wanted to provide exact change and it always seems to be those few pennies that are the most difficult to fish out of the ol' purse) - as I couldn't obviously "pay it back" to the person I pulled out all the stops to try to at least "pay it forward"......

    Oh, that was so sweet of her!! I often pass coupons on to others in a store if I cannot use them.
