Last night, the Wife and I stopped in at our local Thai restaurant for a quick dinner. It was probably our third time in there in the past month and a half or so.. After we ate, when the waitress came to the table to clear it, she didn’t have a bill. She just said “Thank you for coming, dinner is on Santa tonight.”
I was shocked, I don’t think anyone has ever just picked up my tab for no other reason than just pure kindness. We just sat there for a few minutes, not really sure what to do.. It didn’t feel right to accept it, but they sure weren’t going to bring me a tab. I wanted to pay it forward, but it was late, and there was no one else in there to pay it forward to.. So, I tipped her all the cash I had in my wallet at the time, about $30.
I’m honestly still a little shocked by it this morning. The Christmas spirit is alive and well here in my little corner of the world.
