- Me: “Find everything today?”
- Customer: “Yup.”
- (Note: she is silent through the transaction, which includes a gift card.)
- Me: “How much would you like on this?”
- Customer: “Oh, sorry. Can I have $150?”
- Me: “No problem.”
- Customer: *after paying* “Can you do me a favor?” *she hands me the gift card* “The next customer you see that you think could use this, could you give it to them?”
- Me: *stunned* “…Of course!”
- Me: “Hi! How are you?”
- Customer #2: “I’m okay, thanks.”
- (Clearly she is not ok, but she is trying very hard to be pleasant. She is getting very basic items: milk, bread, eggs, etc. Nothing very festive.)
- Me: “So your total comes out to $0.00.”
- Customer: “What?”
- Me: “The person before you gave me a $150 gift card to use for the next person I thought could use it. You look like you’re having a rough day, so here are your groceries, and there’s about $130 left on this card.”
