Right place, right time!

Her family was in the process of moving into their new home. During this time a lot of activity was taking place on their bank account. This sent a red flag to their bank. The bank tried to call them but they were in the process of switching phones so the bank put a stop on their account. My friend, not aware of this, went grocery shopping.
After going to the register they were shocked to see their method of payment was stopped. No cash, no way to get cash, they were not sure what to do.. Without blinking an eye or asking any questions, the lady in front of them placed her card in the machine and paid for their groceries.
They tried to get her name to repay her, the lady said not to worry about it and told them to have a nice day.. She had no look of judgment, just a smile and left the store. My friend and her family left - dumbfounded. Nothing like this had ever been done for them before.
Two weeks later my friends took their little boy out for his birthday. They went to a nearby Mexican restaurant. After being seated, their waitress came up to their table.. It was the kind smiling lady who had paid for their groceries! They all had a big laugh, and for a tip? Yep - the amount of cash she paid for their groceries plus much more than her 20 percent, a new friend!
