Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Breakfast And A Date

--by mrsbunch64, posted Apr 2, 2014
I had arranged meet a former student for breakfast. While I was waiting an elderly man entered the cafe. He was dropped off by a local bus company that transports the elderly and infirm. 

As I watched him cross the room leaning on his walker I decided to surprise him by paying for his breakfast. I told the waitress I wanted to take care of his bill but asked her not to tell him who did it. 

After he left the waitress came over and said, "He told me to tell you thank you and to let him know if you wanted a date!" 

It was a great way to start the day and brought smiles all round!
