Positive Karma

Was at Wendy's for lunch today... and a homeless guy walks in, sits down, dumps his QT cup worth of change on the table and starts counting things out. I get up from eating my spicy chicken sandwich, and go ask him if he's hungry. He replies "I'm always hungry", so I said "I'll buy you a meal". Told him he can get anything he wants. Guy orders a crispy chicken combo, and ends up being $3.30. The guy looks at me, smiles, and says. "You know, the best thing about the crispy chicken is that its filling, it tastes great, and its inexpensive". I just belly laughed and told the guy to have a nice day, and went back to finishing my meal.

Guy could have had anything he wanted, and didn't take advantage of that. He bought a value menu meal. It's quite rare that I do something like that, but something was just telling me to go buy that guy his meal. Nice guy... I always wonder about those guys' stories and what got them to where they're at now.

Anyway, any others out there with a humble brag?

Mz, my grandfather ended up being one of those guys. The family tried numerous times to bring him back home, clean him up and get him on track. The two main factors are mental issues and alcoholism. Truly is sad to see. Great to hear when someone is watching out for them!

Nicely done--if everyone makes one "small" gesture we bring back civility. And small to us can be big to someone else.
