“So this cool thing just happened –
I just spent 3 days on the road, to Bismark, ND, Rapid City, SD, and Billings, MT doing a store set-up with a company that I’ve done this for a couple times before, and I decided to treat myself to dinner out – something I pretty much never do, but hey – there’s a per diem involved with this job, so what-the-hell, y’know?
So anyway, I’ve just finished an endless-shrimp dinner at Red Lobster in Billings. I ask for the check, and the waitress says, “Somebody just did a, “pay it forward thing,” for the next person’s meal, so yours is free!”
Isn’t that cool?!
So I told her, “Y’know, I’m gonna get a big check from this job I’ve just done, so…” I pointed to a guy and gal who just sat down a few tables away, with a 4-year old and a baby in a basket, and said, “Could you just pass it on to that table?” She seemed a little surprised, but isn’t it a cool thing that someone did that for me – a total stranger?”
