Far From A Drinking Problem

, , , | Hopeless | July 31, 2016

(After a hectic shift at work, I find out my ride isn’t coming for another half hour. I decide to walk across the street to a fast-casual restaurant chain and just get a drink, because I can’t really afford anything else, so I can wait there safely. I am exhausted and emotionally drained, not to mention I probably smell bad from all the food that I spilled on myself. I walk up to the cashier, who is extremely busy.)

Me: “When you get a moment, could I just get a drink?”

Cashier: “Yeah, sure.” *hands me a cup*

Me: *tries to hand him my debit card*

Cashier: “Don’t worry about it!”

Me: “Are you sure?”

Cashier: “Yes!”

(Though it may seem like a simple act, it restored my faith in humanity. I was sure to put the money I was going to spend on the drink in the tip jar!)
