Tonight, a lady with 3 young kids was ahead of me in line ordering a pizza for supper. The kids asked her if they could get a cookie dessert pizza. The lady counted the money she had, even the coins in her pocket, then had to tell the kids she couldn't afford it. The kids never argued 1 word with her about it, they accepted her answer and waited patiently as the cashier came up and took their order. She walked outside with the kids while waiting for her food. The cashier gave me my order and I handed him my debit card. I asked him to add a cookie pizza to that lady's ticket and to add her entire order to mine. He gave me a strange look but did what I asked. He asked if I wanted him to tell her who paid for the food. I told him no, but gave him one of the #StayHumbleAndKind cards and asked him to just give that to her with the card paid in full receipt. There was a man waiting in line behind me and as I picked up my food to leave he asked about the card that I left for the lady. I took another one from my purse and showed it to him and explained what it was for. He smiled, nodding his head, and told me that he liked that idea. He then turned to the cashier and told him to add the next 3 tickets they had, after his own, to his total so that 3 more families would have a free dinner on him. Tonight I learned that kindness can be contagious. You never know who might be watching your actions or who you might influence to follow your lead.
