Have you ever been the recipient
of a random act of kindness?

I have been lucky in that I have definitely been the recipient of a kindness, but I don't recall ever being the recipient of a "random" act of kindness.  I am thinking of the instances that you hear of people paying for the person behind them in a take-out window, paying for another person's gasoline, things like that. 

Ashleigh drives by a McDonalds on her way to work every day and on Friday's she stops to get an order of their oatmeal and twice now, someone ahead of her in the drive-thru has paid for her oatmeal.  I think that is so cool and I always mean to do it but I guess my mind is elsewhere when I'm in a drive-thru line, because I rarely remember... isn't that horrible?  I need to put a sticky note in my car or something to remind me.

Nope, never happened.   I did pay for someone behind me once in a Starbucks.   That was years ago.

That is awesome, Tracy!  I guess that Starbucks customer was lucky in that Starbucks is WAY overpriced in my opinion... lol. 

Looks like it just might be me & you around here until we can convince our regulars to come back or get some new blood ... sad.
