Was at IHOP with my two toddlers and my ds was looking at the menu and it had a world map on it and was asking where dh was. He's deployed and I was pointing it out and apparently the man four booths over had heard us and paid for our meal when he left. We hadn't even recieved our food yet but the waitress came and told me after he left. Made me cry. It was a nice reminder that people can be kind for no reason.

Nope was just an empty restaurant. That's how I know it was him because it was my family and him in the middle of the restaurant and another older couple st the ther end of the place. Was very quiet and just used my normal speaking voice.

This is something minor but I bought someone some groceries like 10$ worth this week because they had forgotten their card and I just added it to my total. Guess good karma was coming back my way

Awesome! I've had people pay for my coffee in the drive through before. It really does make your day.
