Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Kind Domino Effect

--by Rajni, posted Sep 16, 2020

This is a story of a kind act which had a domino effect going from patient to dentist to sweeper (janitor).

I gave quote cards to patients waiting their turn in the dentist office waiting area.

When I was called in to see the dentist, I placed a “Wear A Mask“ and “Keep Social Distance“ sign on the dentist’s table along with some quote cards.

He checked my teeth and said: “Let broken loose teeth fall down, nothing can be done about it.”

He refused to take a fee from me. I put a little extra on his table. He was giving me more change back, while cutting down his fees. I politely refused to take it and requested that he give it to some needy people.

Immediately he gave much more than my change to the lady who was sweeping the office floor.

I was satisfied that I paid the fee and a little extra as an act of kindness. He got satisfaction by charging a lesser fee and paying forward the rest. I am very grateful to the dentist.
