Three Cents Of Kindness Is Priceless

, , , , , , , | Hopeless | August 4, 2019

(I am in a store buying two coloring books for my little sister. I only have ten dollars, which my mom has just given me.)

Cashier: “Your total is $10.03.”

Me: “Oh, well, I guess that I’ll just put one of them back.”

Cashier: “It’s only three cents; I’ll pay it!”

Me: “No, no, it’s all right. You don’t have to do that. I’ll just put one back!”

Customer Behind Me: “No, you won’t. I will pay it!”

Me: “No! It’s okay!”

Customer Behind Me: “Look, it’s no trouble to me. It’s only three cents, and if you want to pay me back, all you have to do is do the same for someone else. It’s Karma or something. Besides, I’m sure whoever you’re buying these for would like two coloring books.”

(I still objected, but she wouldn’t hear any arguments and paid the three cents. I thanked her profusely and cried all the way to my car, and most of the way home. My little sister loved the coloring books!)
