Random acts of kindness...

I was out and about today running errands when I stopped at Target to pick up a couple of things.  My order totaled $18.95.  I paid using a Target gift card I've been carrying around for a couple months.

After I was finished, I turned to the lady that was in line behind me held out the gift card and said, "I think there's a dollar left on this card and it's yours if you want it."  You would not believe the reaction I got from her or the cashier! You would have thought I handed over a million dollars.  They were both so surprised and happy by what I had done.

I walked away smiling and yet still thinking, " Really, people, it was just a dollar!"

Have we become such a self centered society that the gift of a dollar deserves such a surprised response?  It's pretty sad if we have!

So, go there and hand someone in line behind you a dollar or whatever is left on that gift card you keep forgetting to use and make their day.  Their reaction is guaranteed to make yours too.
