Pay It Backward
Did you know McDonald's has 39 cent
hamburgers every Sunday?
Or should I say - does your dog know?
I stopped by there on my way home from the
Okay, one for each of us tonight,
then two more left over for tomorrow,
since I will be putting in a long day water sampling,
the dogs can have an extra treat.
When I got to the window and tried to pay,
the girl said
"The police officer in the car in front of you paid for yours."
I asked why and she said
"Because the car in front of him paid for his."
I said "Well then, how much is the order for the car behind me?"
She said it was $5.61.
I didn't hesitate, I just said "Okay, I will pay for theirs then."
That was gratifying, interesting and fun.
I love random acts of kindness.
I would have liked to find out how long that went on.
I don't care if I paid a dollar for my 39 cent burgers.
There is always next Sunday.
