Just when I decided that humanity is all screwed up and everyone is only out for themselves I come across a person willing to do a good deed just for
the hell of it.
I was going through the Hungry Jacks (Burger King for you yanks) drive through to get some breakfast this morning, as normal I place my order at the
first window and wait for the cars in front to move along so I can pay at the second window. As I'm pulling up, the guy at the window says it's my
lucky day, I ask gingerly "why is that?", thinking it was going to be some crappy HJ's promo or something.
"The man in front of you just paid for your meal"
Still sceptical and a little unbelieving I ask him if he had mistakenly charged the guy ahead for my meal.
"No, it's just something that he does when he comes through for a coffee"
Wow I thought, I'm sitting here now wondering why would someone do such a nice thing for a complete stranger?
Granted the meal was only $11 but it made my day, it also made me realise two things, the first is that there are still decent people out there
willing to do something nice.
The second is that it's sad to see the way our society has become if a small good deed is met with shock and suprise, just goes to show how often it
doesn't happen anymore.
