Helping out with dinner

As I was out and about today I realized I should stop for milk. I pulled into a grocery store where I seldom go and ran in. There was a bit of a holdup at the register and as people started leaving the line to find a faster one I found myself close enough to see that the person checking out was having an issue with paying for her groceries. The cashier closed out the transaction and was ready to move on. Impulsively I told the cashier I'd pay for the groceries. Since it was a store I don't usually frequent I don't have one of their club cards so the cashier made sure to scan one to take advantage of a great turkey sale - The $18 turkey came to only $5.50. My milk and the woman's groceries totaled only $20 so it was an inexpensive feel good moment.

Also known as "Pay it Forward". Good on you (as the Aussies say), you have probably given her a gift she will cherish for a very long time. I've always known you are a special person. Del
