I went to the cafeteria today to get lunch.I took my tray to the cashier and set it down on the counter.There were two people ahead of me who I did not know.I said "Oh darn it I forgot my cookies" so in a hurry I went to get them.When I got back the cashier said "Your lunch has been paid for". WHOA!! That was soooo cool.I have never had that happen to me before.

On Tuesday I was attacked by a very,very mean person so this was nice.

Have you ever had a stranger buy your lunch?Have you ever bought a stranger their food?

It had to be one of the two that you didn't know. That kind of makes sense,

It was the person ahead of me.When the person paid for their lunch they told the cashier "I would like to pay for this lunch as well".That is what the person in back of me said.

happened to my brother once in hawaii before he enlisted-he was in line to buy a pizza, and the guy behind him was a army vet and found out my brother was enlisting and paid for his lunch. As a sort of thankyou If I run into vets in stores and restaurants Ill pay their bill on occasion.

It's odd to me. Maybe the U.S. is a kinder country than Britain. I've never heard this happen before.

It does not happen very often but it is the desire to give to others which is kind.

I  had many a meal paid for me when I was homeless.

Too many to count , I was blessed. 

Some gave more than just a meal.

One person helped change my life around but its a long story.

Yes, I've known that happen but never a stranger pay for a meal for somebody who can afford to pay for the meal themselves. It's a good thing, I agree but unusual.

More often than not I could have paid for the meal.

 

I never lied ;if I had the money to pay for it,  I would say so but it was still paid for me.

I never went with out , in fact often I had more than I required and could share with others.

 A person who can afford to buy their own food?Then only those who should be Blessed and buy them a free meal should the homeless.We can also Bless those who have money and a place to sleep.Many of those people can use a kind act or a kind word for many of them are not saved.

BoPeep, I'm not saying it was wrong. It's a nice gesture. I'm just saying that it is unusual - at least in my experience.

It was well known by several I have talked with.But this is the U.S.Maybe things are done differently here.It is called "Pay it forward".

I think we're not like that here in Britannia. We're too reserved to get involved with strangers. We don't pay for their food, it would be considered patronising. If we did, we would ask first and never do it behind their back.

That is too bad.It is a kind,thoughtful thing to do.

A few months ago a lady was digging around in her purse for enough to pay at a McDonald's.....   I just retched over and swiped my card to pay for her bill and she spoke up and said....   "You can't do that."     I looked over and smiled and told her that I had pretty much gotten out of the habit of telling God no......    she cried....  and so did the waitress...

Ohhh...that is sweet.I have heard of people having the waitress give a person or family a note when they leave that their food was paid for and a nice message about God.

Okay fair enough, BoPeep, but now for the big question:

 

What did you actually have to eat? Can you remember?
