Random Kindness at Walmart December 22, 2012

Posted by digitalbrownshirt in Personal Experiences.

My wife has an overnight job as the main cashier at a local Walmart. Early this morning a lady came in with with six crisp $100 bills in her hand. She used them to buy six gift cards worth $100 each then left. During the next 30 minutes Sandra (Mrs. DBS) had six customers come up and tell her that a lady had given them gift cards and a “Merry Christmas” while they were shopping in the store. They were shocked to find out that the cards really were worth $100 each.  Sandra knows most of her regular customers. $100 is huge deal to many of them at this time of year.

Anyway, I thought it was a neat story.

That’s awesome. A similar thing happened to my grandma last Christmas Eve.

Great story, but it would have been better if it had been the federal government handing out those gift cards.

For some reason that no one can explain.

Sobek I might have known you would be the lone cynic. Tut. Tut, Tut.
Don’t you know she WAS from the federal govenment. She was Joe Biden in drag.

Glad that somebody around here takes the time to straighten Sobek out.

Our friends, Nate and Heather, just dropped off some homemade fudge at Camp Geezer ™. It’s part of their Christmas Eve tradition. They deliver fudge to friends all around the valley from early afternoon until 1am (last year). Since we’ve only known them a few months, I figure it counts as a Random Act of Kindness.

Geezer, maybe you could tell Nate and Heather to be extra kind and swing by Dallas next year on their Christmas Eve route.
