Stories of Kindness from Around the World

One Blessed Can of Coke


--by courts, posted Oct 12, 2006
My SMILE cards came in the mail last night. YAY! And I have been so excited to use them!

I read a story about taping a card with the right change on a vending machine and I thought i'd try it out...

I sat at my desk and tried to secretly get my card and money ready, but people kept coming in and I wanted to keep it anonymous so I had to keep hiding my card and money. I felt like i was a spy on a secret mission!!!

I finally got it done and went to the kitchen, which had around 10 people in it. So I had to stay and drink about 4 cups of water until no one was there!!! So funny!!! (at least I am hydrated!).

I stuck the card on with the money and ran out as quickly as I could... my heart beating so so so fast!!! I never thought being secretly kind could produce this kind of adrenaline!!!

I will go and check on it soon... I hope someone has been blessed and feels as good as I do now!!!

We have an aldi's grocery store and in order to keep their costs and prices down, you have to put a quarter into the cart machine to get a shopping cart and then you get it back when you return it. So i put a smile card on the cart and a quarter in the machine, so the next person doesn't have to go scrounging for change. (it is a nuisance to have to go in and get in change as there is never enough cashiers and they are always busy. )
