I was standing in line at Chipotle, waiting my turn to place my order. No matter what time I go, there always seems to be a line. The man in front of me had a list and was ordering meals to-go for his entire family. When he got to the register, he looked over at me and told the cashier, “Add her meal to my bill.”
I immediately said, “That’s so nice of you, but you don’t have to do that.” He replied, “I want to. Sorry for the extra wait.” I was still in shock, but thanked him, and walked out the door with a smile on my face and my free Chipotle dinner in hand.
This complete stranger had no idea of the long day that I had, but because of his random act of kindness, I ended that day feeling joyful.
