Went to grab a sandwich during my lunch break and tried a locally-owned sub shop a few blocks from my work.
I ordered and got out my credit card, assuming they had something available to run it. They didn’t, but I didn’t find out till my order was ready. I had a check on me, so I got it out to write one when he waved me down.
“Are you in the downtown?” I told him I was. “Save your check and come back Tuesday.”
He pushed the sandwich towards me, despite my protests. He didn’t ask for my name or anything, just assumed I would come back.
He was right, of course — I will go back. But his kindness floored me. People are awesome sometimes.
