True Value Of The Dollar

, | Hopeless Working | April 22, 2016

(My husband and I are in line for the register. Ahead is a man with a couple kids buying a few things and behind us is a pair of women with a few children. The man seems to have just found out his payment is declined. He is asking the cashier to put his things aside and he’ll be right back with a different form of payment.)

Woman #1: “How much is it?”

Cashier: “Like… five bucks.”

Woman #1: “Oh, I have that. Here.” *she pulls out a $20 bill* “Let me pay for it.”

Woman #2: “She’d be unhappy all day if you didn’t.”

Man: “Oh, thank you so much!”

Cashier: “Now I have to do math in my head… Here’s your change.”

(In short order the man had his purchases and was on his way. I wish there were something I could have done, too. It was the sweetest thing I had seen all day.)
