Random Acts of Kindness

Last night, after Adam's Baseball Practice (yes, Baseball season has started and we're not even finished with Gymnastics yet!), we stopped to get a treat.

MY treat was stopping at Tim's for my coffee! MMMM Coffee ... XL Triple Triple!

So we're in the drive-thru, I order, pull ahead a bit and wait for the car in front of me to move and then see someone pull up behind me, giving them no more than a glance in the rear view.

When I reach the window to pay for my order, the girl says, 'The guy behind you paid for your coffee.'

HUH? WHAT? REALLY WHY??? ?

I was told this guy is a regular at that particular Tim's and that's something he does occasionally ... pays for the order in front of him.

WOW! With all the crap and insanity in our world today, there are STILL people out there who do random acts of kindness!

Who knew?!?!?!?

I thought about the stranger a few times last night. I hope someone does something nice for him someday.

Have a great day all. Be kind to strangers!

Oh ... and to the gentleman at the Tim's on Beaverbank Rd. last night around 7:30pm ... THANK YOU!!!!! :-)

Ooh, this sounds like a lovely idea! I might steal it from that guy!

I've never heard of someone paying for it in FRONT of them, but I've paid for the people behind me a time or two *giggle*

Glad you got a treat!

It was a very nice surprise, I must admit :-) I'm just glad I hadn't ordered donuts for the kids, juice, Bagle lol.

And ya know what? I just may try it myself some day :-) Bring the same surprised smile to someone else's face ;-)
