Random acts of kindness
Yesterday the man in line in front of me at the coffee shop said he would like to buy the drink of the person behind him. He only got a regular coffee; I always get a latte. It felt very uncomfortable to me even though he said it was simply a random act of kindness. I did thank him graciously but it left me wondering about how others feel in these situations.
Have you ever been a recipient of a "random act of kindness" that involved money? If so, how did you feel? Could it have been done in a better way?

I had a group of ladies from another table pick up my bill for breakfast last week. It felt so funny, I am always the one who does things like that!! I did go over and thank them, i'm sure I was beet red. Come to find out they worked with one of our DD's, they wanted to thank me for sending in goodies to share during holiday's. So sweetReplyDelete
What do you mean by "DD's?"Delete
Oh boy, those "random acts" can be fun, but also patronizing and embarrassing. You gotta be careful.ReplyDelete
Once last summer I did stop for a man who was collecting returnable bottles by the side of a state road, near the intersection to the Interstate. I gave him $20. He was thrilled . . . but he was also clearly desperate.
