Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Smile Tag In A Restaurant Last Night

--by MakeSomeoneSmile, posted Oct 11, 2021
I was in a restaurant last night and saw a woman and her mother come in for dinner. Her mother had a walker and they sat off to the side. As I sat eating I thought they were excellent prospects for a kindness tag! I worked the details out with the manager and told her not to tell them who paid for their meal. I gave her a Smile Card to give them. They were so surprised and tried hard to get my identity from the manager. After a few unsuccessful attempts, they smiled, thanked her, and left.

When the manager came and told me how it went, I smiled and laughed. She asked me if I knew them and I told her no. She said there needs to be more kindness like that in the world. I agree and had fun doing my part for a day!
