Here’s your evening warm and fuzzy.
A man overhears a mother and daughter discussing some bad health news and pays for their dinner check.
What’s the last good deed you’ve done?
When one mystery diner in a Boston restaurant overheard a mother and daughter get some bad news, he took out a pen and scribbled this note to his waiter: “Do me a favor and bring me their check, too. Someone just got diagnosed. Don’t tell them.” The waiter, impressed by his customer’s act of kindness, posted the note on Reddit — and we’re glad he did. (Now we get to have our “faith in humanity restored,” too.) The waiter, known as Whiskkas on Reddit, writes that the two women started crying after the daughter received a phone call mid-meal, and that he then combined the two bills as requested. He added: “I waited until the guy left and told them he had taken care of their check, and that he said best wishes, which was what he said to do on the note he wrote me on his second bill. The mother cried even harder, I almost lost it.”
