He had a budget...

Just wanted to share...

So I sent my husband to the store with a budget... $20 to get what we needed. He then comes home and tells me "dont be mad" because he spent $85!

Then he proceeds to tell me that the family in front of him in line couldn't get their card to work and had no cash so he just included our stuff and paid for their groceries & things.

Seriously... I love him.

Just wanted to share. Random acts of kindness to occur. Pay it forward.

My hubby does that, minus the buying others' things. He just can't stick to a list lol.

 nice :-)

As much as I love hubby ...hes a cheapass and wouldnt even see the family struggling with the card let alone offer to pay for it.

We were going through the toll booth and they only had small change and we would of ended up with a ton of change....I said just leave it and we can pay for the next car...nope we had to stay there while the toll attendant counted out the 4 bucks in small change!

I've never bought someone else's whole grocery order, but I've helped out people who were a little short. I've been in that situation, and even now operate on a tight budget, but I can usually find a few dollars to help out people in need.

That's awesome your hubby could do that.
