Three or four years ago I was in the check out line of a discount grocery store. The gal ahead of me was probably about 25. I;m guessing a single mom with kids, most that age here, are. I say that because we are mostly a town of older retirees.
She was trying to bu a big bag od shredded cheese on a electronic food stamp card. The total was probably less than $5 and the card did not have that much left and it would be a few days to reload it time
I watched as she had a forlorn look on her face and she put it back on the shelf and walked out.
Why didn't I pay for it? There probably where some hungry kids involved and I was raised by a single mom that didn't always have it either. I know at times others stepped up. Even tho its been a few years it still bothers me, Why didn't I pay for it? Has this happened to you, a missed opportunity for some kindness?
