little annoyed that just when I think I have mankind figured out to be selfish and uncaring, someone comes along and ruins my theory

I could go on and on but I will stop here.

She asked to see the tickets to ensure she was paying the bill for tickets with [color=B18AFF]TOYS on layaway. She wanted to ensure that her act of kindness would benefit [color=B18AFF]CHILDREN.
Secret Santa picks up 3 layaway bills
"This lady came up randomly and said, 'Can I, you know, pay off some people's layaway?'" said Dannell Goddard. Goddard works at Kmart in the layaway department. She told 24 Hour News 8 that when she first heard the request, she was a bit confused.
"I was like, 'Well, are you trying to pick them up? 'Cause you can't pick them up if you don't have an ID," Goddard said. "And [the mystery woman] replied, 'Nope, I just want to help people.'"
The woman looked through several of the about 800 layaway contract tickets at the store. She randomly picked and paid the bill on three of them. She paid about $500 between all three of them and left a $10 balance on each of the accounts

But the story doesn’t end there. Just days after News 8 aired its report on the anonymous Secret Santa and “copycat” Samaritan also paid a visit to the Plainfield Kmart and settled 14 layaway bills totaling around $2,000.
The man, who also says he wishes to remain unidentified says he hopes that his copycatting will inspire other to copycat him.

Yeah, it's a nice thought and all...... but was this↓ really necessary?
Do those tickets not have personal information on them?

[color=858585](Maybe they don't... I've never done it, but I assume that they would)
If the plan was to pay off random items for random people, then why would she need to see the tickets?
...item being bought? ....purchaser's name?....address? ...phone number? ...credit card info?
