Not Gonna Quit On One Last Act Of Kindness

, , , | Hopeless | August 3, 2016

(This happened when I was in middle school, on a road trip. After eating my meal (parents paid for), I scrounge for enough of my own pocket money to order my favorite desert.)

Me: “One small [Ice Cream Dessert], please.”

Cashier: “Okay, coming right up.”

(As he walks away to prep the dessert, I awkwardly stand there with my money waiting for the total.)

Cashier: “Here ya go, bud!” *hands me dessert*

Me: “Um, but, how much?”

Cashier: “Don’t worry about it.”

Me: “Um, uh, okay, I guess.” *awkwardly walks away*

(A few minutes later:)

Cashier: *to coworkers* “Peace out. I quit!”

(He took off his apron and walked out. It made me so happy that I remember it decades later. Way to go out in style while making a kid’s day, awesome worker dude!)
